Posted: Updated:

HURON, S.D. (AP) - The Oglala Sioux Tribe has been awarded a $30,000 federal grant to fix sewer system problems.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday announced the grant for the residents of Red Shirt located on the Pine Ridge Reservation.

Officials say the proposed project includes an evaluation of the sewer collection system and treatment lagoon. The evaluation would be followed by reports explaining how to get the system to comply again with EPA regulations.
