Solid weather allows for major progress on Lewis & Clark project

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – Good weather allowed construction on the Lewis & Clark Regional Water Project to make a lot of progress this year.

Executive Director Troy Larson says most of work was along the Iowa – South Dakota border.

Larson says they got a good start on other important parts of the project.

Larson says they are planning on starting some new projects in the spring.

Larson says the regional water supply is about eighty percent done. They are supplying water to towns and cities in South Dakota, Iowa, and Minnesota from the wells near the Missouri River south of Vermillion.
