Another $21 million would go to the Southwest Pipeline project.

Fast tracking the bill means bids can be opened soon – and construction could start this spring.

Water project serving the oil patch expanding

Jul 31, 2012

It's another sign of the growth in the oil patch.

The state Water Commission has approved an expansion of the Western Area Water Supply project. That project will bring Missouri River water to residents and businesses in the patch.

As originally proposed to the 2011 Legislature, the project would be able to borrow up to $110 million from the Bank of North Dakota. Because of population growth, the project has grown to $119-million. The extra $9 million dollars will be paid for directly from users.
