Livestock Water Supply Program Reactivated

Severe drought conditions impacting North Dakota cattle producers have led the State Water Commission to reactivate the Drought Disaster Livestock Water Supply Project Assistance Program.

Eligible livestock producers in drought proclamation counties may qualify for up to $3,500 in cost-share assistance, for up to three projects, on the following items:

  • New water wells,
  • New rural water system connections,
  • New pipeline extensions, pasture taps, and associated works,
  • Labor, materials, and equipment rentals for work completed by the producer to develop new water supply projects.

The 26 eligible counties are Adams, Billings, Bowman, Burke, Burleigh, Divide, Dunn, Emmons, Golden Valley, Grant, Hettinger, Kidder, McHenry, McKenzie, McLean, Mercer, Morton, Mountrail, Oliver, Renville, Sheridan, Sioux, Slope, Stark, Ward and Williams.
