“A lot of people had flood insurance in West Fargo but dropped it because of the Sheyenne River Diversion Project,” Kyner said. “They figured they would be safe.

Oxbow Levee Certification is a Sham Argument: The underlying quandary that exists with the overall OHB (Oxbow, Hickson, Bakke) project is that there is no written assurance that FEMA will accept or “certify” the OHB ring levee when it is completed.

Not only did Oxbow, ND exceed the FEMA and USACE 100 year flood stream-flows in 2009…, it exceeded the FEMA 500 year flood level as well.
