Fargo Dam and FM Diversion Costs as of July 31, 2017

Fargo Diversion Authority spent another $24,454,553.37 from June 30, 2017 to July 31, 2017. Over 24 percent of the original projected cost.

With unfinished internal flood protection projects the Fargo Diversion Authority continues to pump millions into the non-flood prone OHB ring-dike-levee and private Oxbow Country Club, courtesy of state and local taxpayers.

An April 27, 2016 Corps’ Memorandum similarly shows that the Corps understood the PPA could not be signed unless the Corps provided assurances that the congressionally-approved Requirement was met. Ultimately, the Corps agreed to the Requirement limiting the Corps’ ability to enter into the PPA, took the money, and then abdicated its responsibility to assess the state regulatory and permitting issues affecting the project. The Corps simply ignored the state regulatory issues.
