Dalrymple Helps Dedicate New Valley City Water Treatment Plant
BISMARCK, N.D. - Gov. Jack Dalrymple today joined Valley City Mayor Bob Werkhoven, State Engineer Todd Sando and other local and state officials in dedicating Valley City’s new water treatment plant, citing its state-of-the-art technology and advanced capabilities for enhancing water quality for local residents. The nearly $21 million renovation and new addition was unveiled for the public during a ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony.
The state provided more than $20 million in grants and loans for the project. The State Water Commission provided more than $15 million in grants and the North Dakota Department of Health provided $4.6 million in forgiven and 1 percent loans through the North Dakota Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. An additional $800,000 was provided through State and Tribal Assistance Grants.
“This new state-of-the-art water treatment plant is an impressive addition to Valley City’s infrastructure and will have advanced capabilities for meeting the future municipal water needs of the community,” Dalrymple said. “The state is proud to support this project and to partner with the city to bring enhanced water quality and services to Valley City residents.”
Prior to the ceremony, Dalrymple joined the North Dakota Water Education Foundation in touring the new plant.
