Wayne Hoglund Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

Wayne Hoglund Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

In a period of time when the government is very deeply in debt, to spend money for a very complicated and expensive diversion is almost ridiculous; especially when the Army Corps of Engineers declared their first choice as the Minnesota diversion.

Bruce A Hendrickson 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.

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.
