Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., announced Friday that he has secured

$18.3 million to help strengthen water supplies and infrastructure across North Dakota.

The projects, funded from the economic recovery package, includes

$2.4 million to relocate Valley City’s main sewer line away from the Sheyenne River. The line crumbled in the recent spring flood, forcing many residents to use portable restrooms.

Another $3.75 million will provide a more reliable and increased water supply for the cities of Casselton, Kindred, Mapleton and Davenport, all part of the Cass Rural Water users system.

Similarly, $900,000 will provide safe drinking water for areas of Richland County that have groundwater contaminated with arsenic.
