The Red River Valley Water Supply Project (RRVWSP) is a plan to safeguard water for North Dakota communities and rural water systems in times of drought by delivering water from the Missouri River to central and eastern North Dakota through a buried pipeline. Upon its completion, RRVWSP will benefit about half of North Dakota’s population by providing a supplemental water supply during droughts and will also provide opportunities for industrial development. RRVWSP is needed to mitigate against drought conditions that would cause costly shortages, foster economic development by meeting municipal, rural and industrial water demands, and promote environmental stability.
The state lead for RRVWSP is the Garrison Diversion Conservancy District (Garrison Diversion), while the Lake Agassiz Water Authority (LAWA) represents the local users in the project. Together, the two organizations are continuing the forward progress on RRVWSP and work together to keep you informed. A quarterly newsletter is distributed to keep interested parties up-to-date on the latest project advancements. See the latest articles from the third quarter newsletter and sign up to receive future newsletters at www.rrvwsp.com. You can also follow the project on Facebook and Twitter; just search Red River Valley Water Supply Project or @RRVWSP.
