I think when these excavation guys get done there, they should just move their equipment right on over to Fargo and put up a permanent levee…so the discussion of a billion dollar ditch can end and Fargo will have the same protection as Oakport.

Satellite views of this area are facinating, and show that much of this area would have been in North Dakota had the Red River remained in it’s original channel that is mentioned in the article.
If we divert the river to the west of downtown Fargo, will we be living in Minnesota? Rivers choose their own course occasionally, and the Red might like the new channel better and dry up the old channel, as happened in this case. Food for thought?

You are so clever (seriously). I hadn’t even thought if this before. Would it be possible to argue that, whenever there is more water flowing through the diversion than the Red, that the land between the two becomes part of MN? Is it possible that, during a flood, it would be impossible to gather the Flood sales tax at West Acres, because during that time, West Acres would be part of Clay County? The possible (and silly) scenarios are endless.

If Fargo became part of Clay County….would that mean that Cass County taxes might finally be used for something other than Fargo related projects??
