Man­i­toba says North Dakota water plan a threat

Waterloo Region Record - - CANADA -

The Man­i­toba govern­ment is ap­peal­ing a U.S. court rul­ing that could lead to a con­tro­ver­sial water-diver­sion project go­ing ahead. The prov­ince says the project could bring harm­ful or in­va­sive plants and an­i­mals into Man­i­toba wa­ters. The $244-mil­lion project would trans­fer water from the Mis­souri River to north­west­ern North Dakota, where rivers flow into Man­i­toba. Man­i­toba and Mis­souri have fought the project for more than a decade, but a U.S. fed­eral judge ruled the project fol­lows U.S. en­vi­ron­men­tal laws.
