Corps review based on merit, not volume
When it comes to taking public comment on U.S. Army Corps of Engineers projects, Craig Evans is used to hearing a louder voice from the “no” camp.

I find it interesting that while Moorhead is building flood protection Fargo is mumbling, fumbling, and stumbling over a diversion. I feel much better about being on the MN side of the Red if a huge flood comes as compared to being in Fargo getting ready to do the back stroke to Winnepeg while dodging ice jams.

Fargo is stumbling around because they have latched onto a failed plan….flooding in the valley ins’t just a Fargo issue…it is a valley issue. The big ditch just pushes the problem onto someone else at an absolutely staggering cost. Nobody has even mentioned yet about all the maintenance costs that will be associated with such a huge ditch. Just dealing with the mosquito and noxious weed problem should be enough to shut the project down.
