A contractor has been hired to do work to repair damage that has shut down the system that provides much of the water that flows through the Milk River, with no shortage of water expected in the communities that use the river as a source of water.
St. Mary Diversion and Conveyance Works has been shut down since Drop 5, at the end of the 29-mile system, washed out and collapsed May 17.
A joint press release by the Bureau of Reclamation and Milk River Joint Board of Control says Sletten Construction Company was selected to do the repairs, expected to be completed by late summer.
