Officials with the North Dakota state engineer's office say they're waiting for backers of a $2 billion Red River diversion project to explain how they plan to secure land rights from upstream residents whose property would be used for a staging area in times of high water. Many of those residents oppose the project. (AP Photo/Jim Mone, File)
