Darrell Vanyo: I would be prepared to recommend an opportunity to upstream interests to participate on the Diversion

MN DNR Letter to Darrell Vanyo Diversion Authority Chair 2014-04-22

The OHB levee is a project component of the F-M Project, without an independent basis for its construction as proposed.
