Lewis and Clark Regional Water Project

 It is another quiet summer for the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project. 

Executive Director Troy Larson says their board is working through possible funding options to restart construction. 

Larson says they are delivering water to eleven of their members, with nine still waiting.

He says they could restart some construction fairly quickly, but would take more time to restart the entire project. 

Larson says the project is about sixty five percent complete, with about two hundred million dollars in additional construction needed.

The project would provide water to towns and rural water districts in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota.
