Fargo Dam and Diversion Costs as of October 31st, 2014

Fargo Dam and Diversion Costs as of October 31st, 2014

Fargo Diversion Authority spent $13,316,244.27 from September 30th to October 31st, 2014. Nearly 1/18 (5.5%) of the original projected cost and they haven’t even started on the actual main project. The bulk of the costs went towards the OHB ring-dike-levee and new golf course features…, instead of completing crucial internal flood protection for the city of Fargo and it’s residents. When the state of North Dakota committed monies to Fargo, did they ever think it would be spent outside the jurisdictional boundaries of Fargo?

Those Dam Diversion Easements

Farming is arguably a business, just like any other. The unique facet of farming is that it contributes “lifeblood” to the economic landscape of the Red River Valley, North Dakota and national economy – providing thousands of jobs and billions in gross annual revenues, as opposed to a golf course that cannot even fill its private membership roster.

The fact is the location of the diversion alignment with the dam, ditch and levee does not increase the protection of the currently developed area of Fargo vs. more conservative and less expansive flood control plans. The location only gives the city more area to grow without FEMA flood plain regulations.
