Fargo-Moorhead's Diversion Authority is considering creating educational videos for the community. It wants to show what a flooded Red River Valley will look like with the proposed diversion in place. Authority members say the videos are a good idea to showcase smaller retention projects too.

The North Ottawa Impoundment, a series of small retention ponds just south of Breckenridge, helps hold back water. These projects are not for permanent protection but could be a useful design when shaping retention projects here.

Rodger Olson – Diversion Authority Board: "I think it's very important for everyone, inside and outside of the project, how it works and how it will benefit. And how it will protect them, and how it will impact them."
