BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Land Board has awarded about $8 million in state oil-impact grants to Watford City and the McKenzie County school district.

Officials say the money awarded Monday will be used for street, water and sewer infrastructure that will support the construction of a new high school and residential development. The Land Board also committed another $3 million in grants next year to help cover the utility construction costs.

The Land Board will award a total of $240 million in impact grants through 2015 to counties experiencing rapid growth from the state's oil boom.

The Land Board is headed by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.
