The Flood Diversion Authority’s Agricultural Policy Subcommittee will meet again on Tuesday, August 14, to discuss a number of issues.
The Subcommittee is scheduled to receive a Diversion Project bridge design criteria update, and take part in a discussion of the Federal Crop Insurance Program and the effect of the Diversion Project’s staging and storage area on the insurance coverage of farmers who own agricultural land in the affected area.
In addition, members will hear details about a local drainage study being completed for the portion of the project between the BNSF Prosper Subdivision railroad line and the outlet.
