Corps predicts small upstream impact from flood diversion


FARGO — A little more than 2,000 additional acres of land under water as a result of the Red River flood diversion to protect Fargo-Moorhead.

That’s the total area in Richland County and Wilkin County, Minn., that would be submerged in the event of a 100-year flood because of the diversion, beyond the area that already would be under water regardless of the project, according to officials.
