500 year Protection More Hot Air

500 year Protection More Hot Air

Ok, now the Forum had the story on the issue of 500 year flood protection that was to be provided by the Fargo Moorhead Flood control project. http://www.inforum.com/event/article/id/347319/group/News/. “At a meeting of the Metro Flood Study Work Group in November 2009, local leaders unanimously set the bar high.

Please put me on the list Mr Mayor Walaker

Please put me, my family and most of the 300 hundred other North Dakorta and Minnesota citizens who oppose the Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion on the front page of the Fargo Forum.

Moorhead, Clay Leaders Ask Franken for Another $30M Toward Diversion Design

GIVE US MORE MONEY Once again, local leaders have their hand extended requesting funding for the Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion.

They’re Still Stealing Our Land!

This “protection” removes the requirement for flood insurance and many times people do not obtain flood insurance. When the flood reduction system fails or is overwhelmed,  there is no  flood insurance. […]

Fargo Has Done it Again

Fargo Has Done it Again

Author: Ray Grabanski, Kindred Imperial Fargo has done it again sticking a huge spending project to protect Fargo on the rest of the taxpayers of North Dakota and the United States.
