State Vital Records office returns to pre-flood location 
PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Vital Records office is returning to its location in the Waterfront Center, 207 E. Missouri Ave, Suite 1-A, in Pierre. The office will close the afternoon of Friday, September 9 and all day Monday, September 12 for the move. It will reopen at the Waterfront Center on Tuesday, September 13.
Vital Records has spent the past three months in temporary quarters at the Capitol Lake Visitor Center due to the Missouri River flooding.
Since relocating, the office has been closed to walk-in customers. On September 13, Vital Records will again be open to walk-in customers, however, the building will not have handicapped access until the levee is removed. 
South Dakota residents needing copies of birth, death or marriage records can also obtain them through local county register of deeds’ offices or through the Vital Records website, http://doh.sd.gov/VitalRecords/order.aspx.
