On the heels of good news for their 2014 budget, the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project got word of a drop in their federal money for 2015.

An additional five point two million dollars was added in the current fiscal year, which would allow a few miles of pipeline to be built.

Then the 2015 budget was released, which will give the project two point four million dollars.

Executive Director Troy Larson…

 

Larson says that low level of funding means another year of no construction…

 

Larson says he has no idea where they turn next…

 

The project is about seventy percent complete, and still needs about one hundred seventy million dollars to finish.
