An extra $500,000 was approved for the Drought Disaster Livestock Water Supply Program to assist drought-affected ranchers, bringing the program’s total funding since its reactivation on June 22 to $1.325 million. Williston Herald (N.D.), Aug. 26, 2017 North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum announced $75,000 in funding to add to the Drought Disaster Livestock Water Supply Assistance Program, a program the State Water Commission re-activated roughly three weeks ago. The initial funding of $250,000 has already been exhausted. The program allows up to $3,500 for a producer to spend on a new water supply. The Dickinson Press (N.D.), July 12, 2017
