Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - We all have them - questions about the proposed Red River Diversion.

Advanced Engineering says people have been especially curious about what flooding will be like after the diversion is complete.

People have been calling for custom maps, showing what their land would look like in a 10 year, or 100 year flood.

The group's in the early stages of creating an interactive map.

It would give people a clear, easy picture of how their land could be affected by future flooding.

Daron Selvig, Flood Diversion Outreach: "The best we can hope for is to provide information. A lot of the discomfort that people may feel is that they are looking for information that isn't available yet.”

The maps are created with information from the Army Corps and local engineers. It would be posted on F-Mdiversion.com.
