Kindred School District Attorney Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

The District-along with local Townships (who independently maintain zoning control) and other cities in Cass and Richland Counties-were locked out of having any formal place at the table while USACE and local sponsors formulated and planned the flood protection plan.

Aaron Carlson Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

I am writing to inform you that some information in Appendix G – Real Estate of the Fargo Moorhead Metropolitan Area Flood Risk Management Final Feasibility Report and Environmental Impact Statement dated July 2011 (Final Report) is incomplete and therefore inaccurate.

Dennis Walaker, Hero or Nero?

Dennis Walaker, Hero or Nero?

HERO -or- NERO Caesar? In 1997, Dennis Walaker was bolstered into the limelight as a defender of Fargo that eventually landed him into the mayors seat. As a resident of Fargo in 1997, I held the same regard for Dennis Walaker as many others. Dennis Walaker was a city employee that served his community with […]

MN Center for Environmental Advocacy Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

We have followed the process and reviewed draft document prior to publication of the FEIS. We are also aware that MN DNR has a number of remaining and additional legitimate concerns with the FEIS including the benefit cost analysis, effects of the diversion and water staging on sediment transport and geomorphology upstream and downstream of the project area, and fish passage. We believe that these areas of concern warrant further clarification before this FEIS can be considered complete.

Glen and Marilyn Libbrecht Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

As a local landowner and farmer, this project will have a very negative effect on me and fellow farmers and rural residents. When local city and state officials went to Washington to present their case for this diversion, were there any negative impacts mentioned? The impact of this project to the rural area has not been entirely considered.

Moorhead, Clay Leaders Ask Franken for Another $30M Toward Diversion Design

GIVE US MORE MONEY Once again, local leaders have their hand extended requesting funding for the Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion. A ritual that will be repeated many more times to fund a 2 billion plus and climbing project that, based on the United States Army Corps of Engineers statistics, which has a 99.98% chance […]

National Wildlife Federation Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

National Wildlife Federation Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

The Corps has not taken sufficient measures to mitigate the harmful environmental impacts and increased threat of flooding to upstream and downstream communities. The current plan threatens the upstream communities, including Hickson, Oxbow, and Comstock, by placing them under feet of water in flood years.

Minnesota DNR Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

Minnesota DNR Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

The locally preferred plan includes a water control structure that is classified as a high hazard dam, which requires preparation of Minnesota State EIS. As part of State EIS scoping, additional assessment and review will be necessary to demonstrate that the above mentioned criteria are fulfilled.

They're Still Stealing Our Land!

They’re Still Stealing Our Land!

Editors notes:  Ran across this article some time ago and there are similarities that exist as they pertain to the Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion.  Fargo’s “virtue of selfishness” is evident in their procedural land grab for future development with the assistance of the USACE (United States Army Corps of Engineers). America was founded on […]
