The U.S. Corps of Engineer and Red River Basin reports failed to include the net effects of flood plain encroachment on rising flood crests and flood risks, which is directly related to new flood insurance requirements. Every person impacted with new flood insurance requirements can thank Fargo for gambling with flood data, dragging their feet on completing internal flood protection and continuing growth into flood prone areas causing greater future flood risks.

Fargo Diversion Authority refuses to explore retention as a viable flood protection option.

U.S. Sen. John Hoeven’s recent opinion article in local newspapers was right on the mark.

Distributed retention protects the entire Red River Valley, included Fargo, which protects more land, more cities, more people, more property and infrastructure.
