FARGO (KFGO-AM) - The F-M Diversion Authority wants to become involved in a lawsuit that seeks to stop construction of the proposed diversion. The panel has asked a federal judge for permission to intervene as a defendant in a civil lawsuit filed by the Richland/Wilkin Joint Powers Authority.

The Army Corps of Engineers is being sued by opponents who claim the diversion was approved without considering the interests of upstream landowners.

Diversion Authority Chairman Darrell Vanyo says the authority has a "critical interest" in the case. A hearing on the diversion authority's request will be held Nov. 26 in Duluth.
