At the North Dakota State Water Commission meeting chaired by Lt. Governor Brent Sanford, the Commission approved $61.2 million in cost-share requests. The Commission voted to approve funding for several municipal, regional, and rural water supply projects, as well as projects related to flood control, and general water.
The Water Commission supports local sponsors in development of sustainable water-related projects in North Dakota through the Department of Water Resources (DWR) Cost-Share Program. The primary purpose of the DWR Cost-Share Program is to assist local project sponsors with financial support of water development projects – making them more affordable to local constituents.
