The James River Water Development District awarded $110,107.43 in cost-sharing assistance at their recent Board of Directors meeting held Thursday, April 14, in Britton.

The District awarded $78,000 to Yankton County to install a box culvert with riprap located in Walshtown Township. The current structure is currently posted at 3 tons gross and is in very poor condition. The original structure will be replaced with a concrete box culvert sized for a 10 year runoff event and raise the elevation of the road 2 feet above the existing structures.

The District awarded $28,573.13 to Hutchinson County for bank stabilization at three bridge locations. Due to flooding on the James River in the last few years many of the banks surrounding the bridges of Hutchinson County are eroding. The County has determined that three of the bridges need to have the banks stabilized before the bridges become compromised. The bank stabilization projects will include shaping of the bank and placing riprap to stabilize the bank and to stop future erosion and flood damage.

The District awarded $3,534.30 to a Marshall County landowner in Buffalo Township to repair a dam in a pasture that has approximately 150 acres of land that drains through it.
