Tester Delivers Fix For Twin Bridges Water Pipe Damaged In Flood

New Infrastructure Will Serve More Customers, Improve Safety

(U.S. Senate) – A water main damaged by flooding in Twin Bridges is being replaced, thanks to a grant delivered by U.S. Senator Jon Tester.

The $150,000 grant will partially fund the replacement of an existing 2-inch main running under the Beaverhead River with a new, improved 12-inch main.

Tester was the only member of Montana’s delegation who supported the bipartisan agreement that provided these grants.

“Water is crucial to life in rural Montana, and this grant will make sure Twin Bridges has safe, reliable water,” said Tester, a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. “This money will help Montanans maintain the integrity of their water system and make a lasting investment in their community for years to come.”

This project will improve water quality and safety, and allow the Twin Bridges water main to serve an additional 210 Montanans.

Tester recently secured funding for similar water projects in Scobey, Paradise, and Stillwater County, and delivered over $30 million for clean drinking water along the Hi-Line.
