Work is continuing on plans for the Red River Valley Water Supply Project.
That project will bring Missouri River Water to the Red River Valley and other areas of Central and Eastern North Dakota in times of drought.
It has a more than $1 billion price tag. And Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney said that price tag can be a bit scary – especially for smaller communities along the route.
"Everyone wants to have drought protection in our state," Mahoney said in an interview. "But it's an investment."
