Hoeven Announces Reclamation Grant to East Central Regional Water District

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee and the Energy and Water Development Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) has awarded $733,081 to the East Central Regional Water District in Grand Forks County. This grant will be used to construct a nine-mile water transmission pipeline to help increase the water supply to the City of Larimore by 29% from the Elk Valley Aquifer and will utilize the city’s wells currently not in use. This grant was made available through the WaterSMART Drought Program. 

“Access to a reliable water supply is critical to our communities and this funding from the Bureau of Reclamation will help address high-priority water infrastructure needs in eastern North Dakota,” said Hoeven.
