WASHINGTON (AP) - A water system designed to bring high-quality, purified water to rural parts of three states will get an additional $5.2 million in federal funding.

South Dakota Rep. Kristi Noem announced Tuesday that the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System would get additional money from the Bureau of Reclamation.

U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson says this project will contribute to the economic development and quality of life of many residents in the state.

Lewis and Clark executive director Troy Larson says the project still needs millions more in federal funds, but the additional money will allow about 5 more miles of pipeline to be built.

The Lewis and Clark Regional Water system is designed to improve the water supply to rural parts of South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa.
