Moorhead considers flooding strategies

Email

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.
