Fargo Forum Attacks Minnesota DNR

Fargo Forum Attacks Minnesota DNR

The pace and push for the proposed Fargo Dam and FM Diversion is the very essence of corruption. It is the melting pot of decisions made under duress due to time constraints with a constant overstatement of impacts and a manufactured EOE study to set Fargo’s flood gage as the benchmark for the entire Red River Valley.

Wild Rice Alternative

Wild Rice Alternative

Project Failure: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers fails to explore options and alternative that DO NOT promote encroachment and urban sprawl into the last natural flood plain south of Fargo, ND in direct and indirect violation of Executive Order 11988 (EO11988). More to the point, the limited alternatives explored are concentric to the “exploitation for urban sprawl” into the last natural flood plain south of Fargo, ND.

It’s unfair and unethical to force family farmers, homeowners and communities to pursue their own costly legal recourse to Fargo’s development project. But then again, maybe we’re expecting too much of our neighbors and elected leaders.

This is a new tactic and was prompted perhaps by Fargo’s tardy realization that the project will not survive Minnesota’s permitting process. The State of Minnesota now needs to defend its laws and its citizens from Fargo’s development plan. If you are a Minnesota resident it is very important that you immediately contact your representatives and let them know your feelings and the importance of this matter.

If Keith Berndt is willing to share misinformation to a national newspaper (Star Tribune) on a project this large, what other nuggets of misinformation have been swept under the rug and kept from public scrutiny?

Fargo's Magic Water

Fargo’s Magic Water

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Fargo Diversion Authority distorted the 2009 flood event at Fargo, ND with a “non-official” EOE (Expert Opinion Elicitation) to overstate impacts, increase the Cost Benefit Ratio and downgrade previous historic flood events and flood protection in pursuit of a $2 billion plus boondoggle.

Who needs a pipeline to move oil field benefits from the west? Fargo diversion backers have concocted a scheme to turn the state’s oil and agriculture bounty into a giant ATM machine.

I am familiar with your letter dated Jan. 14, 2014 to Darrel Vanyo, warning Fargo’s Diversion Authority that this action may violate Minnesota law. After receiving your letter, Fargo-Moorhead’s Diversion Authority concocted an “independent utility” story.

If Fargo is in effect buying votes by unwise use of funds, what are we going to get in the end? That will leave the people of North Dakota and Minnesota footing the bill for millions of dollars to provide nothing.

Self Serving Media Upstaged by Real Journalism

As I re-read the Agweek article by Mikkel Pates, it’s easy to realize who the hero’s and zero’s really are, by their responses. The shameless “economic engine”, often touted by the pro-Fargo Diversion Authority ilk, is a direct assault on small towns and rural economies.
