The number of internet views is increasing of a fly-over video utilizing Google Earth animation and preliminary design line work of the F-M Area Diversion Project. The video was posted earlier this year in the Video Library section.
The video, which details the draft conceptual design of the Project by the Corps of Engineers, displays a fly-over starting at the Diversion’s southern end, then traveling west, north, and northeast, and finally concluding at the Diversion Outlet. Various stages of design have occurred to date, with more detailed design on the north end of the Project.
The video also includes narration of Project details by Diversion Project consultants as the fly-over video progresses.
In addition to being posted on the websites of several local news outlets, the video was recently shown at the Red River Basin Commission’s 31st Annual Red River Basin Land & Water International Summit Conference.
