Rural Water Projects
The Bureau of Reclamation continues to develop rural water projects in areas of the West where groundwater is of insufficient quantity and poor quality. Many of these projects are taking place on Indian Reservations in Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota. USDA's water and wastewater loan and grant program is used to develop water systems, including storm drainage and solid waste disposal facilities, in rural areas with 10,000 or fewer residents. Over the last three years, the Rural Utilities Service provided over $4.8 billion in assistance for this purpose, funding over 3,897 community infrastructure projects and benefiting approximately 1.3 million rural residents per year.
