An informational meeting designed to explain West Fargo's flood protection to residents is slated for 7 p.m. Monday at the Sheyenne Ninth Grade Center, 800 40th Ave. E.

West Fargo isn't expected to see much impact from spring flooding because of the Sheyenne Diversion, but the city has grown rapidly since the 1997 flood and many residents may not be aware of how West Fargo is protected.

City leaders say the meeting will let people know how West Fargo plans to fight high water levels this spring. The city is protected by a flood control project consisting of two segments.

A canal intercepting the Sheyenne River on the west side of Horace diverts water north, where it connects to the West Fargo Project. It protects Horace and subdivisions south of Interstate 94.

The West Fargo Project intercepts the Sheyenne River immediately south of I-94 and runs west to the Horace Project.

The two canals merge into one, channeling water northwest along West Fargo's city limits before rejoining the Sheyenne River north of 12th Avenue North.

More information and a map of the diversion is available on online at www.westfargond.gov .
