PIERRE, S.D. (KELO) — A previously unnamed water body in Hughes County should be formally known as Arikara Creek, the South Dakota Board of Geographic Names has decided.
The creek is on land south of Pierre along the Missouri River. The final decision came Wednesday.
The board’s chair, June Hansen of Pierre, said three additional comments were received and that was uncommon. The packet now goes to the national board for consideration in 2021.
