Water System May Receive Drip Of Funding

The Lewis & Clark Regional Water System is closer to at least a little more federal funding. The House Energy & Water Appropriations Bill will include an additional twenty five million dollars for the Rural Water Program of the Bureau of Reclamation. Troy Larson, Lewis & Clark Executive Director says they won’t see the entire twenty five million dollars…

Larson says they would like to see those additional dollars be the floor for future funding, but there is no guarantee of that from the Obama Administration…

Larson says the bill still has to get final approval in the Senate…

Construction on the three state water project has stopped because of a lack of federal funding. They need about two hundred million dollars to finish up.
