Madison pushing forward with water plan

     MADISON, S.D. (AP) - Town leaders in Madison aren't waiting for the U.S. government to move ahead with plans to connect to a new source of water. 
     City engineer Chad Comes says the South Dakota Legislature appropriated $1 million toward the effort. 
     He says that money will be repaid when federal funding is approved for the city's leg of the Lewis & Clark Regional Water System. 
     Madison's 6,500 residents couldn't drink city water for a couple of days in January after a concrete-and-dirt roof collapsed into an underground well that feeds the city's water towers, which contaminated the water.
