Fargo-Moorhead Update: Inlet and Control Structure Site Flyover

The Flood Diversion Authority has just released an extended flyover video, taken on Friday, June 16, 2017, of the construction work being done at the future site of the Fargo-Moorhead Area Diversion Inlet and Control Structure south of Horace, North Dakota.

The diversion project includes a 30-mile long diversion channel in North Dakota with upstream staging, a 12-mile long southern embankment, 19 highway bridges, four railroad bridges, three gated control structures and two aqueduct structures.

Once complete, it will significantly reduce flood risk for more than 230,000 people and 70 square miles of infrastructure in the communities of Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, Horace and Harwood.

The Flood Diversion Authority was formed through a joint powers agreement between the City of Fargo; the City of Moorhead; Cass County, North Dakota; Clay County, Minnesota; the Joint Cass Water Resource District; and the Buffalo-Red River Watershed District.

The mission of the Flood Diversion Authority is to build the flood diversion project to protect the approximately 200,000 residents of the greater metropolitan area.
