Matt and Rachel Ness Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

We feel this project would be a gigantic mistake and waste of taxpayer dollars. The result of this project would take away my livelihood and devastate my farm and that has been in my family for four generations. The project will only benefit a small part ofthe Fargo/Moorhead area, while creating more water problems throughout the Red River Valley Basin area. There are too many holes in this current plan and too many foreseeable problems, this radical plan the Corps has planned is illogical.

Still at it, rejecting solutions

Still at it, rejecting solutions

Mr. Jack Zaleski has been one of my favorite writers in the area, not that we always agree, but I have been able to understand his viewpoint. As one of those who has moved back to the farm, we have a different perspective on this issue. I still do appreciate his viewpoints. The focus on […]

Through the eyes of a wayward college student and aspiring journalist, she’s captured a portion of the uncertainty and indifference that many feel as the proposed project silently overwhelms better senses. More curious is Kristin Kirtz’s corroboration of a behavioral defect that should have more people […]

Sometime innocuous statements…aren’t so innocuous after all. Two different reporters, from two different publications, nearly two months apart report eerily similar words spoken by Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker.

The impact and importance of cultural and community heritage should be valued with the same weight as other economic values. If the diversion project proceeds, please confirm, with historical examples, what federal law means by: “each affected parcel will be appraised and assessed for impact: as a way to determine what “just compensation” might be”.
