Part 5: Exposing Fargo Moorhead (FMDA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)

WRRDA 2014 was so stuffed full of pet projects that of the 514 votes cast between the house and senate, only 11 dissented. It’s not like the entire U.S. Congress took a hard look at the FMDA project and considered it worthy.

Fargo's Taxpayer Funded Cult

Fargo’s Taxpayer Funded Cult

Prognosticate future weather conditions years, if not decades into the future. Yet, repeatedly miss short-term flood forecasts by several feet and ignore flaws in methods and flood prophecies.

Whitney's Witless Water Whining

Whitney’s Witless Water Whining

Think about this…, the Fargo Dam and FM Diversion Authority and the USACE intentionally downgraded the 2009 flood crisis to a 50 year flood event, which would make a 100 year flood event seem even more dangerous and unrealistic, then project proponents try to invent a theoretical “what if” crisis 5 times larger than the 100 year flood event they claim has not yet occurred to justify their agenda.

Self Serving Media Upstaged by Real Journalism

As I re-read the Agweek article by Mikkel Pates, it’s easy to realize who the hero’s and zero’s really are, by their responses. The shameless “economic engine”, often touted by the pro-Fargo Diversion Authority ilk, is a direct assault on small towns and rural economies.

Oddly, citing – “as designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers” is reminiscent to those – “as seen on T.V.” infomercials, wherein a misleading problem can be fixed with the latest and greatest huckster science – with the whole intent of getting into your wallet.

Fargo – Cass County | Doesn’t Make FEMA Top 10 Federal Disaster List

“If Fargo is such a big important city then why didn’t Cass county (Fargo) make the list when they have repeatedly self professed that the Fargo Dam and FM Diversion is the second most important project in the nation?”

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker letter to ND Public Service Commission January 9th, 2012 re: CapX 2020

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker letter to ND Public Service Commission January 9th, 2012 re: CapX 2020

Dennis Walaker: We expressed support for the CapX2020 project subject to two comments. It appears that the corridor and proposed route have been moved farther to the south and also have been reduced in width so that they are well below the proposed diversion channel for the Metro Flood Project. As a result, we feel comfortable withdrawing that comment from our June 2011 letter.

Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker letter to ND Public Service Commission June 20th, 2011 re: CapX 2020

The City of Fargo would prefer that the entire corridor be placed outside the Locally Preferred Plan of the diversion project; we prefer that such land not be consumed by the easements, with their restrictions on development, acquired by CapX and that development of that land not be impaired by the presence of the CapX structures.
