The City of Medora was awarded the North Dakota Chapter of American Public Works Association Project of the Year Award for its water storage project at the ND Water and Pollution Control Conference held in Minot earlier this month, a press release said.
The Medora Water Storage Reservoir was chosen as Project of the Year for communities under 5,000. This tank took the water storage capacity for the city from 50,000 gallons to 200,000 gallons.

Highlands Engineering of Dickinson was also recognized for designing the project.

The project was done because officials were concerned about fire suppression in the city. Since Medora is the number 1 tourist destination in North Dakota, there is always concern to keep the historical integrity of the area when doing a project, according to the press release.

It was decided to bury the new tank into the side of a butte on the east end of town because of visual concerns.

The city was able to bring this project to fruition with the assistance of an Energy Impact Grant and Surge Funding.
