The fact is the location of the diversion alignment with the dam, ditch and levee does not increase the protection of the currently developed area of Fargo vs. more conservative and less expansive flood control plans.

It’s the area where the water naturally collects as it’s been doing since our river system was formed by Mother Nature.
