Diversion Authority joining federal lawsuit fight

FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- The FM Diversion Authority has voted to file a motion seeking to fight a federal lawsuit against the project, brought by upstream opponents.

Last month, the Richland-Wilkin Joint Powers Authority sued the Army Corps of Engineers in an attempt to stop the project, claiming it would damage farmland in the project's so-called "staging area" south of Fargo.

The diversion authority has asked a federal judge to allow it to join the lawsuit, saying it will send a "clear message" of the importance of having local supporters make their case.

A U.S. district judge is expected to rule on the request next month.
