Earlier this month Troy Larson, Executive Director of Lewis & Clark Regional Water System, delivered a one-million-dollar check to South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem at the State Capitol in Pierre. The payment reimbursed the State’s General Fund for a “federal funding advance” the Legislature approved during the 2014 session. Federal funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was used to make the repayment.
The City of Madison is still awaiting its connection to Lewis and Clark. Larson says Madison’s water needs are stable for now.
Larson says connection to Madison should be completed in the next two years.
Larson says there are benefits that Lewis & Clark offers to the city.
