Minnesota Judge To Hear Diversion Arguments Tuesday
Could Decide To Halt Construction of F-M Diversion
Both sides in the legal battle over the Red River diversion could get some clarity soon.
A federal judge in Minnesota will hear arguments Tuesday on whether construction of the project should be halted until developers receive the necessary permits from the Minnesota DNR.
The 36-mile channel is envisioned as the solution to the frequent flooding threat to Fargo-Moorhead.
But a group of people sued in 2013 because it likely would mean floodwaters cover farmland outside the metro instead.
