BBPWA serves 11 town and rural water districts in McCurtain County, we are the regional water source. With the tourism boom in our county, several rural water districts have asked for an increase on their water contracts for more consumption to keep up with the growth.
Broken Bow Public Works Authority (BBPWA) expanded the water treatment plant in 2007 and completed a 1.9 million gallon clear well for water storage in 2021. Crist Engineer was the engineering firm on both of these projects that were completed successfully and will be our engineer on this project.
