Part 5: Exposing Fargo Moorhead (FMDA) and the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)

WRRDA 2014 was so stuffed full of pet projects that of the 514 votes cast between the house and senate, only 11 dissented. It’s not like the entire U.S. Congress took a hard look at the FMDA project and considered it worthy.

MN Gov Mark Dayton Expresses Strong Concerns About Fargo Diversion Authority Project

The Diversion Authority began construction of the Oxbow-Hickson-Bakke ring levee (Ring Levee) in North Dakota this past June. Given that land’s elevation, it is highly unlikely that this levee has independent utility separate from construction of the overall Project. Thus, construction of the Ring Levee, prior to completion of Minnesota’s EIS, violates our state’s law. Given the express commitments made by the Corps to Minnesota during the federal environmental review process and in the Chiefs Report, it is unacceptable that federal funding should be appropriated for the Fargo-Moorhead Project, or that construction should be allowed to begin prior to completion of Minnesota’s environmental review.
