Project Cost

Construction costs for both projects will total $193 million (1998 dollars) with Dry Prairie's cost being $68 million and the Fort Peck Reservation's portion being $125 million.

Federal legislation states the Fort Peck Reservation portion will be 100% funded and DPRWA's portion will be 76% funded. The remaining 24% will come from state and local sources. The local portion will come from hook-up fees and the sale of bonds.

Dry Prairie's annual cost of operation, maintenance, and debt service is established at $2.1 million once the system is completed. Operation and maintenance costs on the Fort Peck Reservation are 100% covered by federal funds.
