SURREY, N.D. (AP) - The water system in the north central North Dakota city of Surrey is getting a $3.2 million upgrade.

The Minot Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1fLO2yf) that the City Council recently approved construction of a new water tower, a new water main and a pump station upgrade. The work is to be done over two years.

The State Water Commission is providing a $1.5 million grant to help mitigate the cost. The improvements are still expected to cost property owners about $200 annually for 10 years. However, the project should improve the city’s insurance rating and mean lower fire insurance premiums for residents.
