Dallas Israelson Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

As residents of Cass and Richland County, North Dakota, we are expected to pay the cost of a plan that benefits only the future growth of Fargo, North Dakota. Even if there was a risk of a huge flood there are several alternatives to protect Moorhead and Fargo that have not been explored or have been disregarded by the decision makers, primarily North Dakota leaders.

Fargo has continually forced decisions to be made based on its own interests and has even managed to obtain a supermajority (six of nine seats) on the panel that will be making decisions regarding the project.

Julie Paulson Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

The flood in Minot ND was stated to never happen by the US Army Corp. Why pay $2 billion dollars when there are no guarantees. This is a high risk project which attempts to cross five rivers with a diversion, which has never been done before.

Phillip M. Henry Comments to the USACE re: Fargo Moorhead Dam and Diversion

How is it possible, or even legal for the Corps to issue a pronouncement that upends the lives of family after family without any true concern for the damage, upheaval, and uncertainty it has caused? What is the point of creating a diversion that will have an annual maintenance cost that equals or exceeds the cost of protecting Fargo from flooding in some years, but not all?
