A drought mitigation project that will serve approximately half of the state of North Dakota is among the top infrastructure projects in North America.  The Red River Valley Water Supply Project (RRVWSP) is named in the 2018 Strategic 100 North American Infrastructure Report. 

 “We were pleasantly surprised to hear the Red River Valley Water Supply Project is named among so many high-profile projects.  It is an important project here in North Dakota, but it’s a real honor to be named among the top projects in North America,” says Merri Mooridian, Deputy Program Manager for RRVWSP Administration. 
The list was unveiled during the 10th North American Infrastructure Leadership Forum held October 23-25 in Dallas, Texas.  Bill Davis, Black and Veatch Senior Project Manager, represented the project at the event and delivered a presentation about the RRVWSP.  Black and Veatch is the prime engineering consultant on the supplemental water supply project. 
The RRVWSP ranks 42 on the list and is among the 16 water infrastructure projects that made the list.  Each year CG/LA Infrastructure releases the Strategic 100 report which identifies the “most imaginative and transformative” projects across 12 infrastructure sectors. The report is the product of a six-month analysis of hundreds of projects. 
The RRVWSP is currently in the final design phase. The goal is to begin phased bidding and construction of the project in 2019.
