Funding for the Lewis and Clark regional water system came to a standstill earlier this year due to federal spending cuts.
Nine cities who were expecting to receive water from the pipelines by the end of the decade will have to continue to wait.
Officials from those nine cities met Thursday to discuss what they can do to get more water to their communities.
But without federal funding some say water will be hard to come by.
Officials say with the funding they receive now, they won't be able to finish for another 30 years.
