Marcus Larson “Loss of Life” Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

The staging area presents a greater threat to the city of Fargo, ND due to excessive water levels held above the elevation of the entire city on historically unstable ground. It is generally accepted that populations that have permanent protection in place are less likely to evacuate because the flood protection offers an unwarranted sense of security that does not reflect a true flood risk specific to the given area.

How high would the water be in a 500 year flood event?

How high would the water be in a 500 year flood event?

<<< Return to FAQs >>> The USACE indicates a variety of 500 year flood levels in the FEIS and supporting documentation, without embracing any specific 500 year flood level as an absolute. Craig O. Evans, P.E. Chief, Plan Formulation Section, attributes the disparity as “…not an inconsistency, but rather an outcome of the uncertainty analysis.” There […]

FMDam Salutes Veterans That Served In Peace Time and War

  As I sit by a campfire remembering my relatives that have served, some as POW’s who escaped and were presumed dead, I reflect on the sacrifices they made that made “today”…possible.

Will the Fargo Moorhead Dam and FM Diversion save $19 million in flood insurance premiums?

Will the Fargo Moorhead Dam and FM Diversion save $19 million in flood insurance premiums?

NO! The Fargo Moorhead Dam and FM Diversion WILL NOT remove $19 million in flood insurance premiums for Fargo or the Metro area. FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) creates flood risk maps that lending institutions may use to interpret flood risk on any given property description. Properties are assigned a “risk zone” which is used […]

Dallas Israelson Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

As residents of Cass and Richland County, North Dakota, we are expected to pay the cost of a plan that benefits only the future growth of Fargo, North Dakota. Even if there was a risk of a huge flood there are several alternatives to protect Moorhead and Fargo that have not been explored or have been disregarded by the decision makers, primarily North Dakota leaders.

Nothing to date has provided any reason to believe that Fargo will not continue to act selfishly at the expense of others in the region.
