The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will hold a public information meeting on Wednesday, May 8 regarding scoping documents for an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will describe the potential environmental effects of the F-M Area Diversion Project.
This EIS is separate from the federal environmental review process administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and has its own procedural steps and opportunities for public input. The Minnesota DNR will consider public comments before finalizing the scope of topics to be included in the State EIS.
The public information meeting will be held Wednesday, May 8, 2013, at the Courtyard by Marriott Fargo Moorhead & Moorhead Area Conference Center, 1080 28th Avenue South, Moorhead, MN. The meeting will offer an open house from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to provide informational materials and answer questions about the project and the scoping process. Formal presentations will begin at 7 p.m.
For more information on the meeting and the Minnesota DNR’s EIS process, links to the scoping documents, and information on how to submit comments to the Minnesota DNR, follow this link to the DNR’s Diversion Project Scoping Documents web page.
