ST. PAUL, Minn.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, in cooperation with the Flood Diversion Board of Authority, will host a meeting Dec. 12 for landowners directly affected by the proposed diversion channel for the Fargo, N.D./Moorhead, Minn., area.

This meeting will specifically be for landowners from the Maple River, going north to the proposed Red River outlet structure.

The Corps is in the design phase of the project now and is modifying the originally proposed alignment from what was shown in the feasibility study to improve the efficiency and substantially reduce the cost of the diversion. Landowners who are along this section of the diversion have been contacted by letter. The meeting will focus on the specific properties impacted and what these landowners can expect as the project moves forward. A map showing the modified alignment is attached. More detailed maps can be viewed at: http://www.internationalwaterinstitute.org/feasibility/index.htm.

The meeting will take place on Dec. 12, 2011, at the Harwood Community Center, 210 Freedland Dr., Harwood, N.D. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. with an open house, followed by a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m.
