Minnesota Flood Diversion plans on saving property on the Red River is moving along. Cities in both Minnesota and North Dakota have been buying houses along the Red River at a steady paced, and replacing them with flood levies and walls. The record flood in 2009, forced the residents to fill over 7 million sandbags in 10 days. The original cost by the US Army Corps of Engineers was $1.4 billion dollars, but has increased to over $2.75 billion.
The $2.75 billion project called the Minnesota Flood Diversion is to protect the twin cities of Moorhead and Fargo. The plan moves the flooded river water up canals to property north of the metropolitan area. This diversion around Moorhead and Fargo is a 30 mile long channel pushing the flood waters north. This in turn will flood rural residents that have never been flooded before. Farmers are continuing to fight the project via the Watershed District. The Red River flows north to Winnipeg Manitoba.
