F-M Diversion Closer to Congressional Authorization

Posted: Updated:


The U.S. House of Representatives has joined the Senate in approving the Water Resources Reform & Development Act. That means a go-ahead for the Fargo-Moorhead Diversion project is now within reach.

Along with authorizing a final feasibility study for the Diversion, the $8 billion bill supports water infrastructure needs, reduces the backlog of Army Corps of Engineers projects, and ensures better communication of flood risk to the public.

The Senate approved the bill back in May. The bill will now go to committee for re-working and final authorization.
