BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota senator says two airports in the state will receive a combined $400,000 in federal funding.

U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-North Dakota, says the airport in Watford City will receive more than $327,000. The northern town of Dunseith will receive nearly $86,000 for its airport.

The Watford City funds will be used to rehabilitate the pavement at the existing airport apron, where planes are parked and refueled.

The Dunseith Funds will be used to repair the pavement on the airport taxiway to minimize foreign object debris.
