Cass Rural Water Users District - $1,700,000 to construct a distribution system within the city of Leonard and install rural water mains to provide an alternate water supply to areas near Leonard with elevated levels of arsenic in the groundwater.

Fessenden - $932,000 to replace the existing 100-year-old water tower with a new one.

Lincoln - $836,000 towards a pump station and new water main from Bismarck to create an additional water supply to minimize service disruptions.

Walsh Rural Water District - $565,000 towards a project to increase pipeline capacity, eliminate dead ends in the eastern portion of the system, and serve additional users currently using private wells.

The DWSRF Program is administered by the North Dakota Department of Health with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The program offers below-market interest rate loans to political subdivisions for financing projects authorized under the Safe Drinking Water Act. DWSRF programs operate nationwide to provide the funding necessary to maintain and improve the infrastructure that protects and supplies vital water resources.
