OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The City of Sulphur has a water allotment of 1.7 million g/day from the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer. We are running real close to this number in usage. The city is growing and we will need more water soon. The city has an allotment of 1.78 million g/day in the Arbuckle Lake that we can't use. The infrastructure is not in place to bring it to the city or treat it. This plan is for a treatment & distribution plant for the Arbuckle Lake water. This plan also includes refurbishing 2 water towers, constructing 2 new water towers and pipeline replacement within the city. The plan has the capabilities to service the city's growth and our regional partners. Our regional partners include Murray County RWD #1, Buckhorn RWD, Chickasaw National Recreational Area, and the Town of Dougherty.
The City of Sulphur has a water allotment of 1.7 million g/day from the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer. We run about 1.5 million g/day on peak days. This doesn't leave the city with an opportunity to grow. The city has an allotment of 1.78 million g/day in the Arbuckle Lake that we can't use because there is no way to get it to the city. The city can't grow unless we are able to use our allotment from the lake. The Arbuckle Master Conservancy is applying for funds to construct the pipeline portion of this regional project.
This project will benefit half of Murray County. That includes 2 Rural Water Districts, the Town of Dougherty, Chickasaw National Recreational Area and the City of Sulphur. It would benefit all vulnerable populations by having a second source of water available for growth and in emergency situations.
The project will be executed based on the US Treasury's Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds Guidance on Recipient Compliance and Reporting Responsibilities guidelines.
