Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Area Flood Risk Management Project
Vern Whitten Photography
Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) Adequacy Determination
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources as Responsible Government Unit is charged with determining the adequacy of the Final EIS for the proposed Fargo-Moorhead Flood Risk Management Project.
The DNR has determined that the Final EIS for the proposed Fargo-Moorhead Flood Risk Management Project is adequate.
The adequacy determination marks the end of the state EIS process under the Minnesota Environmental Policy Act, but it does not mean the proposed Project has been approved or may proceed to construction. Additional environmental analysis and evaluation will occur during review of the Dam Safety and Work in Public Waters permit application (submitted by the Diversion Authority on February 18, 2016).
