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.

Angry Rodger Olson Bullies Clay Commissioner

Perhaps it’s just a feeble attempt at misdirection in hopes of duping some unwitting souls into believing that he does not have that stank of Fargo/Cass imperialism on his breath…, or not?

FM Diversion Authority Bubble Will Eventually Burst

FM Diversion Authority Bubble Will Eventually Burst

The December 31, 2014 Distributed Storage Alternative Screening Analysis is neither a fatal blow to opponents or a victory for proponents. It is simply the Minnesota DNR following it’s process and laws to ensure that their final permit determination, which is supposed to come after a public comment period, is both legal and defensible.

Craig Hertsgaard MNDak Testimony to North Dakota Legislative Budget Section

Craig Hertsgaard MNDak Testimony to North Dakota Legislative Budget Section

This is a federal project designed to have federal participation, but the federal government has no money. The continuing budget resolution funding the government in Washington has had a ban on new project construction funding for the last four years, with no end in sight. If you read the letter to the White House from the Minnesota governor, you’ll see he is requesting that no money or support be given to the diversion project, at least until the DNR is done with their study.

Fargo Forum Attacks Minnesota DNR

Fargo Forum Attacks Minnesota DNR

The pace and push for the proposed Fargo Dam and FM Diversion is the very essence of corruption. It is the melting pot of decisions made under duress due to time constraints with a constant overstatement of impacts and a manufactured EOE study to set Fargo’s flood gage as the benchmark for the entire Red River Valley.

CASE 0:13-cv-02262-JRT-LIB Document 80

Initial authorization is not the final word on a Corps project. Authorized projects may be modified for a number of reasons including cost changes and design modifications. The Corps may not commence construction on a significant flood control project without both Congressional authorization and a Congressional appropriation(s). Congressional authorization of a flood control project does not guarantee federal funding through a Congressional appropriation.

CASE 0:13-cv-02262-JRT-LIB Document 79

CASE 0:13-cv-02262-JRT-LIB Document 79

Nathan J. Hartshorn, MN Assistant Attorney General: The Project would flood thousands of acres of Minnesota farmland in order to expand development opportunities in the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Area. The Project also would require construction of a high-hazard dam on the Red River, upstream of Minnesota communities. This high hazard dam requires MDNR dam safety and work in public waters permits, and triggered a mandatory Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) under Minnesota law.
