Gov. Mark Dayton had strong words for the contentious $1.8 billion Fargo-Moorhead flood diversion project at a meeting Tuesday with local and state officials that attracted a large public audience in Breckenridge, Minn.
It will take more than a half-million dollars to mitigate the impacts of an upstream ring levee on wetlands in the Fargo-Moorhead area, a cost some metro-area flood diversion officials have trouble swallowing.
The U.S. Senate passed Thursday afternoon the Water Resources Reform Development Act, a package of nationwide water infrastructure projects including the proposed $1.8 billion Red River flood channel around Fargo-Moorhead.
BISMARCK, N.D. — It appears that Punxsutawney Phil was mistaken, and an early spring has arrived in North Dakota. Along with the arrival of spring, is the arrival of spring showers (and in most years, snow melt) which leads to fields and pastures full of puddles, ponds, streams and sloughs. As a landowner, it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities with regard to those puddles, ponds, streams and sloughs.
FARGO, N.D. — It should come as no surprise that water management officials in the Red River Valley are vigorously pursuing water storage options as part of an overall permanent flood protection strategy. But aggressive water retention in the mostly flat Red River Valley is not the cure-all for flooding. Holding water on the land is a necessary element in the larger flood protection equation.
