FARGO - When it comes to getting permanent flood protection, Fargo-Moorhead area leaders can't expect to drag their heels and get federal funding, Fargo Mayor Dennis Walaker said Wednesday.


Walaker spoke out during a presentation in Moorhead by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on its early ideas of how to provide long-term protection from the flooding Red River and its tributaries.

He said the metro area has support in Washington now, but that can fade.
