Stutsman Rural Water, Enderlin receive loans
Stutsman Rural Water District has received a $1 million loan from the North Dakota Drinking Water State Revolving fund, according to Geneva Kaiser, manager of the district.
The funds are being used for Phase 7 of the district's construction plans. Construction began this fall and will conclude next spring or summer to increase water capacity to the northwest portion of the district, Kaiser said. The project will increase water volume and pressure in the Woodworth, Pettibone and eastern Kidder County areas. No new customers will be added.
The city of Enderlin also received a $760,000 loan toward replacing water mains, installing a new well and cleaning the inside of existing water mains to ensure safe water distribution.
Loans were also announced for Agassiz Water Users District, Dakota Rural Water District and McClean-Sheridan Rural Water District.
The Drinking Water Revolving Fund provides below-market interest rate loans to political subdivisions for financing projects authorized under the Safe Drinking Water Act. The fund is partially funded by the Environmental Protection Agency.
