Location/Description
The North Dakota Environmental Infrastructure Assistance program encompasses the entire State of North Dakota. Program responsibilities are shared between the St. Paul and the Omaha Districts.

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, 15 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 additional Section 594 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.

The Minot Sanitary Sewer System Improvement project funded in fiscal year 2012 and fiscal year 2014 and the Cooperstown Water Main Replacement project funded in fiscal year 2015 are completed.  A new Project Partnership Agreement is was signed in the St. Paul District with the city of Petersburg in September 2017.  

The cities of Pick City, Kindred, Medina, Cando, Enderlin, 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:

Fiscal years 2008 - 2015  $ 56 million
(ARRA funds FY09 $ 18.3 million)
Fiscal year 2016    $ 3.9 million
Fiscal year 2017  $ 2.76 million


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