Lewis & Clark project should get more federal funding

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – The Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project should see another round of federal funding this year.

Executive Director Troy Larson says Congress included funding in the omnibus bill that passed just before Christmas.

Larson says they hope to get a decent share of the water project funding.

Larson says they have made pretty rapid progress in the past few years.

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