Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Moving homes from flood-prone areas is one thing.

But figuring what to do with cemeteries, in the planned diversion area, is another issue.

Near Comstock, there are several cemeteries that would be impacted by the diversion.

We're told, nearly a dozen family and church cemeteries impacted.

The Corps has met with those parties impacted and will be studying the options for them all.

Kevin Campbell/Diversion Outreach Committee: “It is significant to anyone who has a loved one in one of those cemeteries and we will do everything we can so we don't change the current situation for them.”

There is another meeting planned for next Wednesday in Hickson concerning the cemetery and diversion question.
