MN Gov Mark Dayton Expresses Strong Concerns About Fargo Diversion Authority Project

The Diversion Authority began construction of the Oxbow-Hickson-Bakke ring levee (Ring Levee) in North Dakota this past June.

Thus, construction of the Ring Levee, prior to completion of Minnesota’s EIS, violates our state’s law. Given the express commitments made by the Corps to Minnesota during the federal environmental review process and in the Chiefs Report, it is unacceptable that federal funding should be appropriated for the Fargo-Moorhead Project, or that construction should be allowed to begin prior to completion of Minnesota’s environmental review.

The U.S. Corps of Engineer and Red River Basin reports failed to include the net effects of flood plain encroachment on rising flood crests and flood risks, which is directly related to new flood insurance requirements. Every person impacted with new flood insurance requirements can thank Fargo for gambling with flood data, dragging their feet on completing internal flood protection and continuing growth into flood prone areas causing greater future flood risks.
