OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Loss of electricity during natural disasters can quickly become a major challenge that can affect the public?s health and well-being. Because the costs of installing standby power generators are ancillary to a water/wastewater system, small towns and rural water providers, do not typically invest in them and consequently are unprepared for power outages. An extended power loss can devastate a city?s water infrastructure pumping abilities during emergency situations. Without a standby power generation system, water and wastewater treatment services cannot be provided in emergencies. The purpose of this project is to provide increase the standby power generation systems for small towns and rural water districts across Oklahoma. This project will target water and wastewater systems serving communities under 7,000 in population.
Key Performance Indicators for this project include: ? Time/Duration (was project constructed on time and according to schedule?) ? Cost (was cost of project reasonable and according to budget?) ? Quality (does project work as intended?) ? Owner/client satisfaction (was owner satisfied with the results?)
This project will target small towns and rural communities under 7,000 in population. 90% of Oklahoma municipalities are under 7,000 in population. These small towns and rural communities are often caught in a vicious cycle of unsustainability and each succeeding natural disaster or economic downturn lessens their potential for economic recovery and stability.
Performance indices will be quantified and formulated into a composite index and compared among the Councils of Governments to ensure similarity in quality and value across the State.
