BISMARCK — North Dakota’s annual water report gives it a top ranking in the nation, something the state says is nothing new.
The report outlines violations in any of North Dakota’s 315 water systems in 2020.
Drinking Water Program Administrator Greg Wavra said only one major arsenic violation was found for a trailer park in Williams County.
The violation was fixed early this month.
Most violations were for missing a reporting sample.
Wavra said samples are often provided on a volunteer basis in small towns, and very few miss a month of reporting.
“It’s right on track with what we normally see. I’ve been in the program for 30 years here. We’ve been, you know, year in year out, we’re the highest program in region eight,” Wavra said.
Region eight includes the Dakotas, Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming.
