At no time, has the Diversion Authority been willing to discuss with either group, alternatives that would achieve flood control for Fargo and reduce impacts for those upstream. Whether directed by the Army Corps, or by their own attorneys, their practice of stonewalling those who are being hurt is at best unproductive, and at worst, unethical.

One cannot persist with these lies about farmland tiling increasing water and then turn around and claim that if these farmers held onto “their water” that retention wouldn’t work.

Letter: A Land Development Plan Disguised as Flood Control

When our cup overflows, North Dakota can accomplish great things. We are people of fortitude, work ethic and discipline.

Oddly, citing – “as designed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers” is reminiscent to those – “as seen on T.V.” infomercials, wherein a misleading problem can be fixed with the latest and greatest huckster science – with the whole intent of getting into your wallet.

We have been accused of being against flood control for Fargo and Moorhead, but when we put forward a plan that could lessen the impacts in the counties and utilize the flood plain south of Fargo as a flood plain, it is insinuated that we don’t know or understand what we’re proposing.

Nearly 45 years have passed since the 1969 flood, almost 17 years since the 1997 flood, yet the idiots at the helm in Fargo still build a clay dikes on 2nd street and provide police escorts for sandbags when pumped up flood numbers are created.

The diversion could be moved north of the confluence of the Wild Rice and Red Rivers.
