Quality Water in the Southwest Tour

Drinking water in southwest North Dakota is in short supply, but the Southwest Pipeline Project packs a punch as it brings clean, affordable water to 33 communities and thousands of rural water customers in the region, in addition to supplying water to the Missouri West Water System in state and Perkins County Rural Water System in South Dakota. New demands for water continue to challenge the region, as projects like the Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Library in Medora are scheduled to open in the next few years. Learn about how quality water is essential to the operation of Odermann Organics, a family-owned farm producing organic beef in Billings County just north of Belfield. This tour begins and ends in Dickinson.

​The public is invited to attend the tour, which costs $30 per person, and includes transportation, informational materials, meals, refreshments and a one-year subscription to the North Dakota Water magazine.

Registration is required for this tour. For questions or to register, contact Julie Ellingson or call 701-223-8332.
