Farmers should pay for diversionWhy is the Army Corps of Engineers spending all its time on a ditch, when it should be working on the heart of the problem? As long as farmers are allowed to install millions of feet of additional drain tile every year, the problem is only going to continue to worsen.
I don’t understand why they are such a sacred cow, given they are the sole contributor to this problem. They are causing the problem; let them pay for it.
