Six loans have been approved for North Dakota projects that seek to maintain and improve water infrastructure across the state.

The funding comes in part from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and is administered jointly by the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality and the North Dakota Public Finance Authority.

  • The Central Plains Water Resource District received a $9.7 million Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan toward enhancing the Maddock water treatment plant. The project aims to address supply issues with current customers and add new customers who currently use private wells.
  • The South Central Regional Water District received a $2.5 million Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan to help connect the city of Ashley to the water district, providing the city with a reliable water source.
  • Aneta received a $930,000 Clean Water State State Revolving Fund loan and a $1.57 million Drinking Water State Revolving Fund loan toward fixing or replacing the community’s water and sanitary sewer mains.
  • Buffalo received a $1.3 million Clean Water State State Revolving Fund loan for a sanitary sewer project to reduce the risk of pump failure and flooding.
  • Sawyer received a $480,000 Clean Water State State Revolving Fund loan to improve the reliability of the community’s sanitary sewer collection system.

The program offers below-market rate loans for projects authorized under the Clean Water Act.
