(Denver, CO) -- The U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that states, Tribes, and territories will receive a total of $50 billion dollars through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. 

The State of North Dakota is set to receive $63,041,000 to invest in critical wastewater and drinking water infrastructure projects. The funding is looking to upgrade aging water infrastructure and address challenges like lead in drinking water.

 “With President Biden’s leadership and congressional action, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has created an historic opportunity to correct longstanding environmental and economic injustices across America,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “As leaders, we must seize this moment. Billions of dollars are about to start flowing to states and it is critical that EPA partners with states, Tribes, and territories to ensure the benefits of these investments are delivered in the most equitable way.”
