The purpose of the Flood Diversion Board of Authority is to build and operate a flood diversion channel along the Red River of the North to reduce the flood risk of the stakeholder communities and counties. The Diversion Authority and its members worked with the United States Army Corps of Engineers on the FM Metro Flood Risk Management Feasibility Study to develop the flood diversion channel project.
The Diversion Authority is led by nine board members from the stakeholder entities.
