Planning today for tomorrow’s water

Lake Agassiz Water Authority (LAWA) is working to provide a reliable drinking water supply for the communities, businesses and residents of the Red River Valley. LAWA was created by North Dakota’s State Legislature to coordinate planning efforts and determine the best method to supply the Valley with drinking water for sustainable long-term growth and development.
 
LAWA represents local water users in the Red River Valley Water Supply Project. The purpose of the Red River Valley Water Supply Project is to provide a solution to water supply and quality problems by providing a supplemental water supply to users along the pipeline.
