There is a great promotional commercial currently airing on local television using the theme “Invest in Your Valley.”
Let’s take that to its most literal conclusion.
For the price of the flood protection being proposed for Fargo-Moorhead, you could build 25 to 30 flood-reduction structures similar to the Maple River Dam. This would effectively flood-proof the entire Red River Valley. It would alleviate questions for the F-M area like how far south do we build the flood walls? How high do we build the flood walls? How many communities do we kill downstream when we build a diversion? How ugly are flood walls and diversions?
Denny, Mark, you did a great job again for the F-M area. But I most humbly suggest that you truly invest in your valley. Let’s come together on a plan that will protect us all.
