North Dakota Water Projects Get $515 Million in State Funding

Posted: Updated:

 

  North Dakota water projects get more than half a billion dollars with today's signing of House Bill 1020.  The Bill represents the State Water Commission's budget, which is historic in its funding level. 

Governor Jack Dalrymple (R-ND) says these projects support necessary infrastructure.  He links flood control, water management and water supply needs to quality of life:  "There's no doubt we will see immediate benefits all relating to quality of life in North Dakota -- freedom from fear of floods; confidence in the quality of water supply; confidence in recreational opportunities."

Out of the more than 500 million, one million goes to Fargo for flood control.  Federal and local funds will make up the difference.  "We're going to have a busy two years building infrastructure, so I think we got the tools and we'll be able to make a lot of progress on our water management issues in the State of North Dakota," says Todd Sando, North Dakota Water Commission.
