MN DNR Letter to USACE PPA Fargo Dam and FM Diversion Project

Given that we were not consulted as part of this process and further that we are not able to see the basis for your determination, I believe it is essential to be on the record directly with you regarding the real and significant regulatory issues that are outstanding in Minnesota concerning the proposed Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Project.

Situational Ethics Part 8

Isn’t it rather interesting Fargo Diversion Authority resorts to hearsay and conjecture relating to FEMA flood insurance but have yet to produce a FEMA document defining the claims being made or offered an ironclad written guarantee that FEMA will not require flood insurance behind the OHB ring dike or Fargo Dam and FM Diversion project?

Darrell Vanyo: I would be prepared to recommend an opportunity to upstream interests to participate on the Diversion
Authority Board. The upstream member would not participate, vote, or receive non-public information on matters concerning the litigation. The upstream member’s seat on the board would be subject to annual approval of the board.

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

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. Given that land’s elevation, it is highly unlikely that this levee has independent utility separate from construction of the overall Project. 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.

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.
