The Lewis & Clark Regional Water System has awarded a contract for work on delivering water to some of its members in Iowa. A more than two-point-three-million dollar contract with D.W. Proehl of Sioux Falls has been awarded. The contract includes three components – a meter building at Sioux Center, Iowa, expansion of the existing meter building at Hull, and adding pumps to the pump station at Beresford.
Lewis & Clark Executive Director Troy Larson said that this, along with construction currently underway on the pipeline between Beresford, South Dakota and Hull, Iowa, and the two-and-a-half million gallon water tower at Beresford should be all the system needs in order to deliver water to Sioux Center and Hull, Iowa. He said that they expect water to be delivered to both of those communities by early 2023.
The Iowa communities of Hull, Sheldon, Sibley and Sioux Center, along with Madison in South Dakota are the five remaining members of the Lewis & Clark project that need to be connected.
