Court order sought to stop ring dike construction

FARGO, ND (KFGO AM) -- Lawyers for upstream opponents of the Red River Diversion are suing in Federal Court to stop the construction of ring dikes for Oxbow, Hickson and Bakke.

The Richland-Wilkin Joint Powers Authority contends there's no need for the dike system south of Fargo.

The authority also says the dike system would be premature until the Minnesota DNR finishes its study of the effects the dikes might have.

The authority will ask for an injunction against the Corps of Engineers.

The request will be made in Federal Court.
