Lewis & Clark Water Project receives additional funding


It feels a bit like an early Christmas…

That’s the response of Troy Larson, executive director of the Lewis & Clark Rural Water system.

The Bureau of Reclamation just announced another ten million dollars in extra funding for the project this year.

The money allows Lewis & Clark to get water to Madison, South Dakota and Sibley and Sheldon, Iowa a decade sooner than anticipated…

Madison should be connected to the system by the end of July.

Sibley should be online by the end of this year.
