State Water Commission Discusses Infrastructure Needs

Posted: Updated:

Western North Dakota is becoming one of the fastest growing areas in the country, and the State Engineer says funding for water projects is now at record levels.

Todd Sando says the State Water Commission is working to broaden policies to address the growth in population and infrastructure needs to try to fund more water projects.

He says some of the biggest issues are in Williston and Watford City where the Commission is trying to work with their current infrastructure including water towers and trunk lines.

He says the Commission is currently developing a budget for the 2015 to 2017 cycle.

"We had 240 projects request cost sharing for grant and loan for the next bbiennium So that's more projects than we actually have ongoing statewide," says ND State Engineer Todd Sando.

Sando says the commission is also working on flood control projects.
