Fargo-Moorhead Flood Risk Management Project - Permit

2018 Permit Application and Decision

The DNR has granted a Dam Safety and Public Waters work permit for the revised Fargo-Moorhead Flood Risk Management Project, known as Plan B. The permit includes more than 50 conditions governing project design, construction, operation, and maintenance.

Next Steps

The Dam Safety and Public Waters Work permit is the major DNR permit required for the project construction. However, additional DNR permits and approvals are required as identified in the Dam Safety and Public Waters Work permit. In addition, the project must obtain all other required local and federal approvals, and remains subject to a construction injunction unless/until the U.S. District Court acts to lift that injunction.
