The State Water Commission has approved multiple cost-share requests for municipal, rural, and regional water supply projects across the state.

The commission consists of Gov. Jack Dalrymple as chairman, Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring, and seven governor-appointed members: Arne Berg, Maurice Foley, Larry Hanson, George Nodland, Harley Swenson, Robert Thompson and Doug Vosper.

Municipal water supply project cost-share approvals included the city of Dickinson, $1.04 million; city of Mandan, $2.29 million; city of Minot, $3.63 million; Watford City, $5.43 million; city of West Fargo, $3.42 million; and the city of Williston, $10.89 million.

Rural water supply projects approved for funding were Stutsman Rural Water District, $4.17 million, and North Prairie Rural Water District, $3.45 million.

Large regional water systems were also considered at the meeting, with $70 million approved for Western Area Water Supply, and $55 million for Southwest Pipeline.

The State Water Commission will utilize funds appropriated by the Legislature for the 2015-2017 biennium toward these water supply projects.
