Lewis & Clark ribbon cutting today
The ribbon cutting at the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System’s water treatment plant near Vermillion is being held today. The plant is located north of Vermillion along Highway-19. Today’s ribbon cutting ceremony will include several dignitaries – including Governor Dennis Daugaard, Senator John Thune, Congresswoman Kristi Noem, and others.
Water started flowing through the treatment plant in July and is being distributed to 11 of its 20 member cities and rural water systems. When the other nine members – including the City of Madison – are connected remains uncertain because of a lack of federal funding for the project.
