The North Dakota State Water Commission has approved two new water supply programs and allocated another $2 million to the Drought Disaster Livestock Water Supply Project Assistance Program. Due to the current demand, the wait list for drilling new wells is often longer than six months. This program is intended to help fill the gap until a new well or other water source is secured. Cost-share funds are also available to reimburse producers for 50 percent of the costs for temporary water supplies, equipment and hauling. Applications can be made until August 23rd. The North Dakota Department of Agriculture is administering the program.
