$100,000 closer to clean water for Pierre

The $37.5 million Pierre drinking water treatment plant — the biggest project in the city’s modern history — is $100,000 closer to reality, thanks to the Central Plains Water Development District.


“To the best of my knowledge, the drinking water treatment project is the biggest local public investment in Pierre’s history,” Pierre Mayor Steve Harding stated via a Tuesday news release. “I’m very thankful the water district shares our excitement for the project and is sharing the investment with us.”


Lynnette Eckert is the district’s manager.
