Parshall Water Plant Opens

Posted: Updated:

A new facility a few miles outside Parshall will mean a better water supply for members of the community.

Today was the ribbon cutting ceremony for the "New Parshall Water Treatment Plant".

The new plant will serve the residents of Parshall and rural residents who live in the northeast part of Fort Berthold.

The facility can produce 2.5 million gallons of water per day.

The 12 million dollar facility is located on the east shore of Lake Sakakawea near Deepwater Bay.

With state of the art technology, the plant uses a new cleansing process to purify the water.

(Cory Chorne, Project Manager) "It uses thousands and thousands of little straws that have a vacuum applied to it and its got very small pour spaces. So it will let the water through but it will keep any of the particles out. So its a pretty gentle process, by using that vacuum it just constantly sips on dirty water on one side and produces dirty water on the other."

Mayor of Parshall, Richard Bolken Bulk-en, says the plant comes at a great time for the residents of Parshall and rural residents alike.

(Richard Bolken, Mayor, Parshall) "This new plant of course kind of fixes all of our problems. It fixes our tribal problem as far as rural water and it fixes our city problem as far as having to re-do a plant and here it is."

Bolken says some residents have been waiting decades for access to water from Lake Sakakawea.
