BISMARCK – Sen. Byron Dorgan says an energy and water funding bill that passed the Senate includes money for flood-control efforts in Fargo-Moorhead.
The North Dakota Democrat says the $1.9 million will enable the Army Corps of Engineers to move forward on a study of flood-control options in the metropolitan area, which fought off a record Red River rise last spring.
Dorgan says the bill also includes millions of dollars for other North Dakota water and energy projects, from fossil fuel and hydrogen research at the University of North Dakota to mosquito control in Williston.
