Moorhead considers flooding strategies
MOORHEAD - Water was barely off Moorhead's sandbags when City Engineer Bob Zimmerman approached the City Council about preparing for the next mammoth flood.
His plan, aggressive and potentially spendy, would include:
More than 20 new flood gates, at $20,000 to $50,000 a pop, to block the Red River from entering the city's storm sewer system.
At least 10 new lift stations.
