Riverdale receives loan for water infrastructure

RIVERDALE – The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality announced Tuesday that its Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Program awarded loans to two cities in July.

Riverdale received $1.96 million for replacement of a water tower and asbestos cement pipe to safeguard water storage and transport.

Cavalier received just over $3 to construct a water tower and replacement of cast iron water mains.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency provides part of the funding for the DWSRF Program, which offers below-market interest rate loans to political subdivisions for financing projects authorized under the Safe Drinking Water Act.
