Location/Description

The North Dakota Environmental Infrastructure Assistance program encompasses the entire state of North Dakota.  Program responsibilities are shared between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers St. Paul District and the Omaha District.

Purpose

The program authorizes the Corps to assist public entities, in the form of design and construction for water-related environmental infrastructure, and resource protection and development projects in North Dakota. These projects include wastewater treatment and related facilities.  They also include combined sewer overflow, water supply, storage, treatment and related facilities as well as environmental restoration and surface water resource protection and development.

Background

Since fiscal year 2008, 17 projects have received support from the Section 594 program. An additional $18.3 million was received under the American Recovery and Reinvestment (ARRA) Act of 2009, which allowed for eight of those projects. 

Status

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2017 included $55 million for environmental infrastructure, of which, the St. Paul District received $2.76 million to support the Petersburg Sewer Line Replacement project. Remaining $1 million in funds from the 2015 Cooperstown Water Main Replacement project were also used to support the Pick City Wastewater System Improvement in fiscal year 2018. No additional funds have been received in fiscal year 2018. 

The cities of Kindred, Medina, Cando, Enderlin, Leonard, Oakes, New England, New Rockford and Ross have requested support for their water and wastewater supply repair and improvement needs, totaling approximately $50 million in federal funds.

Authority

Section 111 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2008 amended the Ohio Section 594 program to include North Dakota. Congress authorized $100 million for the program in North Dakota.

Fiscal

The program has received funds for the federal cost share as follows:

FY 2008 ‒ FY 2016                             $59.9 million
(ARRA funds FY 2009                        $18.3 million)
FY 2017                                               $2.76 million
FY 2018                                                    $0 

Infrastructure assistance is provided on a 75 percent federal, 25 percent non-federal sponsor basis.
