North Prairie Rural Water Takes Water to New Heights

North Prairie Rural Water District’s new 300,000-gallon elevated water tower is located south of Minot, North Dakota, along Highway 83.

North Prairie Rural Water District is headquartered in Minot and serves water to over 13,000 people in north central North Dakota, including areas of Ward, McHenry, Mountrail, McLean, Sheridan, and Pierce Counties.

This water tower serves the area south of Minot in the fastest growing portion of the district’s service area. This is the second phase of a $3.9 million improvement project including a 10-inch transmission line and pumping facilities.

Construction took place in 2017 by Maguire Iron of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, at a cost of $1.08 million and was funded with a 75% grant from the North Dakota State Water Commission and 25% loan funds from the North Dakota Department of Health State Revolving Fund.
