The Grand Daddy of misdirection is the FM Diversion project. The Red River is to be dammed up to hold water out of the flood plain so that developers can encroach into areas that would naturally flood.
“The local communities should continue to seek opportunities for storage in the basin.”
Project Failure: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fails to explore options and alternative that DO NOT promote encroachment and urban sprawl into the last natural flood plain south of Fargo, ND in direct and indirect violation of Executive Order 11988 (EO11988). More to the point, the limited alternatives explored are concentric to the “exploitation for urban sprawl” into the last natural flood plain south of Fargo, ND.
