Commissioners debate impact of Fargo-Moorhead flood protection plans “I think there’s going to be water coming at us like we don’t know what,” Pembina County Commissioner Andy Adamson said at the County Commission meeting Tuesday.
It seems as if eyes glaze over when the subject of water comes up.
People pay attention only when the water itself comes up, in times of flood, or goes down, in times of drought. That’s why the work of groups such as the Red River Basin Commission is so important. Those guys are paying attention to water issues while the rest of us are rubbing the sleep from our eyes.
Flood-weary residents in the Red River Valley should have a say in determining a long-term solution, officials said Thursday.

The Red River Basin Commission, made up of members from Minnesota, North Dakota and Manitoba, voted unanimously Thursday in Grand Forks to take a big step toward having more muscle and more teeth in controlling the increasingly unruly north-running river that unites and so often nearly wrecks the hundreds of communities represented.
