OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust (OCWUT) is changing disinfection practices at the treatment facilities. The disinfection system at the facility has reached the end of it?s useful life and must be replaced. This project will replace the existing chlorine gas disinfection system to on-site sodium hypochlorite disinfection system. Chlorine gas is an extremely hazardous project which presents a risk to operators and the surrounding public in the event of a gas leak. It requires extensive safety and regulatory requirements such as preparing and implementing a risk management plan, intensive safety training for operations staff, and associated administrative costs. This project will replace chlorine gas with a safer chemical alternative for disinfection which is safer for operators and the surrounding community.
This project does not require interventions.
A majority of qualified census tracts in the State of Oklahoma are in the Central Oklahoma region. The variables considered in the ranking include socioeconomic factors, household composition and disability, minority status and language, and housing type and transportation. This project will enable vulnerable populations to benefit from this project through infrastructure improvements.
The City of Oklahoma City uses key performance indicators for projects to evaluate the success of a project. Measures include tracking actual to planned Project Completion Time, Budget to Actual, and Engineering Estimate compared to Actual Bids. Plan for collecting required programmatic data includes inspection, schedule tracking/Gantt Charts, and progress meetings using software such as GIS, Primavera, and future use of a Project Management Information System.
