Water Development Plan

The 2021 Water Development Plan is available for review - along with a new dashboard to provide updated information as needed.

The Water Development Dashboard is an interactive platform developed for the water community to make the 2021 Water Development Plan a living document, and to remain up-to-date on North Dakota’s water development efforts. To access the dashboard, click here or the image to the left.
