Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announced Friday that the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System (L&C) will be receiving $12 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding that will be used for infrastructure in Iowa that is part of its expansion from 45 million gallons a day (MGD) to 60.
Reynolds was joined at Sioux Center’s water treatment plant by Lt. Governor Adam Gregg, state legislators and officials from Hull, Rock Rapids, Sheldon, Sibley and Sioux Center.
Said Reynolds: “Today’s announcement demonstrates Iowa’s commitment to the project and the people it serves. This $12 million award will enable a significant expansion of Lewis & Clark.”
The funding brings the State of Iowa’s total financial commitment to the tristate drinking water project to slightly more than $19 million.
