The Fargo-Moorhead Diversion Authority plans to file a new permit application to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources for the proposed diversion project next month.
Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney told the Legislature’s interim Water Topics Committee – the application will be filed March 9th.
"The reason we want to get the permit application in is it takes three to six months to get it approved," Mahoney said in an interview after the meeting. "DNR wants us to move forward. We think it's a good sign."
