CRAMER: No More Boil-Water Advisories for Minot

Aug 11, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Congressman Kevin Cramer attended a ribbon cutting ceremony today to mark the completion of a $30 million water treatment plant for the City of Minot.

The project, which was backed by $22.5 million in federal dollars, will ensure the city’s water treatment plant remains operational during future extreme flooding events.

“When faced with the already stressful situation of fighting a flood, the last thing anyone wants to worry about is whether it’s safe to drink the tap-water,“ said Cramer. “The completion of this treatment facility will bring peace-of-mind to Minot residents, and ensure that another boil-water advisory is never issued in the community again. I applaud the hard work done by local, state, and federal officials to complete this project, and know we’ll be prepared for severe flooding in the future.“

Since entering Congress in 2013, Cramer has supported legislation to ensure funding for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) continues to be readily available for projects like Minot’s water treatment plant.
