LINTON, N.D. (AP) — Officials on Monday broke ground for a water treatment facility in Linton for the South Central Regional Water District.

Rep. Earl Pomeroy says the project has received more than $21 million in federal stimulus grants and more than $7 million in federally backed loans.

The North Dakota Democrat says the project will increase the quantity and quality of drinking water in Emmons, Logan and McIntosh counties.

The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. Expansions into McIntosh and Logan counties then will begin. Pomeroy says another $9 million in federal funding for the water district in fiscal 2010 will help with expansion into Emmons, Kidder and Logan counties.
