About the Project
The project's success means that residents in the 4th Street South Fargo neighborhood can continue relying on the certified flood protection to reduce the likelihood for future emergency flood fighting efforts. This project also keeps properties out of the floodplain, protecting residents from paying flood insurance, which saves them hundreds of dollars per year.
