To the army corps of engineers;
We would like to address this Fargo diversion/dam, we live just south of Fargo in Hickson an area that has never been flooded. Our concerns are that you are going to sacrifice our area to save a few thousand in Fargo. What about the thousands that will be displaced here and to our south? Despite the media on all the flooding very few resident and businesses are effected in Fargo, in fact most Fargo residents are not impacted by flooding and know very little of the impact this diversion will have on all the communities to the south. We feel that something else can be done, perhaps floodwalls and permanent dikes with in the city similar to what Grand Forks did. What about all the businesses, farmers, and schools that will be lost in this plan what’s to happen there? Why should we pay the price in loosing our businesses, homes, and schools to protect them when we have never been flooded that is why we moved here.
