L&C Water Project Looking for Options, Money

A two year budget deal passed by Congress this month may be more bad news for the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project. While spending targets will be worked out next month, it doesn’t look like water projects will get much more money, if any.

The water project has been getting minimal federal dollars the last couple of years, and has had to stop any new construction.

Project Executive Director Troy Larson says they are now talking to state officials……

Larson says they also may try to have the same discussion in South Dakota……………..

Larson says in some cases, they would be asking for double payments…………….

 

Larson says the Minnesota and Iowa segments of the project need about seventy million dollars, while the South Dakota segments would cost about thirty million dollars.

 

The project is designed to deliver water to towns and cities in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota from wells near Vermillion.
