OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
? Alfalfa County Rural Water will update their drinking water system to better serve current water customers and have the ability to add customers to their system. ACRW will add additional lines, well fields, booster pumps, and standpipes to extend and update the system with larger lines and pressure to serve the county border to border. To complete these updates, ACRW will need large equipment and more workers. Alfalfa County has a waitlist for customers they cannot add until these updates are made. The current system is about 60 years old and cannot support the growth of additional customers.
? Compared to the rest of the United States, Alfalfa County has a higher population of elderly residents and a higher median age. The main industries are agriculture, health care, and education. Rural communities like those in Alfalfa County do not have opportunities for updating their water system and pipes due to cost. Soon, the outdated water system and pipes will cause costly repairs and upgrades for the Rural Water District. Agriculture producers rely on rural water during droughts like we are in currently. Additional tap availability would benefit the producers and allow for them to sustain and expand their operations.
? Alfalfa County Rural Water is familiar with the Compliance and Reporting Guidance for State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds and understands our reporting responsibilities. All documents related to this project will be stored for reports. The reporting elements from the ARPA Reporting Fact Sheet will be used to report work done on this project. All documentation will be kept, organized, and updated by the Alfalfa County Rural Water Manager and NODA. NODA and the manager will complete the reports together, ensuring all required documentation is reported. ? Project performance will be measured by the addition of new water customers both residential and agriculture.
