Construction of Lewis & Clark Regional Water System near completion

VERMILLION, S.D.(WNAX)- Another landmark in the construction of the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System.

Executive Director Troy Larson says the final section of pipe between Beresford and Sioux Center Iowa was laid this week.

Larson says there is still more work that has to be done before water is flowing through that pipe.

Larson says they still have a few more member cities to bring online.

The system pipes water to towns and cities in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota from wells near the Missouri River south of Vermillion.
