(WDAY TV) - Another “no” for a Minnesota diversion flood protection project; this time from U-S Senator Amy Klobuchar.

She stopped in Moorhead and talked with the Mayor and City Commission about the Army Corp options. Klobuchar says there are too many disadvantages to a Minnesota plan including eating up farmland and stopping rural expansion.

“They want to make something that is going to be able to contain the most amount of these flood waters. So if you're going to pay money to get this done, lets get it done right and I agree with them on that.”

A local decision on which plan is preferred must be picked by December.
