No New Money For Water System

As the Senate prepares to vote on a two year budget agreement this week, it appears unlikely that any increased funding for the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project will be included.

South Dakota Senator John Thune says they continue to push for more money…

 

The project has been getting five to six million dollars for the past couple of years. They need about thirty million dollars a year to keep construction moving.

Thune says he has made his case to officials with the Bureau of Reclamation…

 

Thune says he has been told the project funding is an issue between the Office of Management and Budget and the White House…

 

The project is supposed to deliver water to towns in Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota from wells near Vermillion. The system is delivering water to about half of its members.
