Sometimes there is too little, sometimes too much. In North Dakota, we have both extremes. Record flooding across North Dakota have set before us challenges of enormous magnitude to tame and control these floods to protect property and lives.

At the same time, drought and the significant growth throughout North Dakota, in both our rural areas and cities, sets before us equal challenges to develop infrastructure to provide adequate water supplies to areas east, north, west, and south.

Water has always been a priority in North Dakota. Collectively, the organizations under the North Dakota Water umbrella work diligently with federal, state, local, and nongovernmental partners to further North Dakota’s efforts to protect, develop, and manage its water resources, and provide solutions when there is too much or too little.
