Fargo-Moorhead Flood Risk Management Project - Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement

The DNR has determined that a Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) is required for the Fargo-Moorhead Diverson Authority's revised Flood Risk Management Project.

The DNR will prepare the SEIS to analyze modifications in the revised Fargo Moorhead flood diversion project proposal. The DNR invites comments on the scope of the SEIS through June 11, 2018. The scope will determine what will be evaluated in the SEIS. The supplemental review is not a new EIS. It focuses on aspects of the revised project that were not evaluated in the original EIS. The DNR will conduct the SEIS work concurrently with its review of the Diversion Authority's permit application for the revised project.
