OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Comanche; Cotton; Jefferson; Stephens
This project will set WLMCD pump stations up for the next 50 years. WLMCD pumps water via 16 pumps that total 7,600 horsepower. Much of the electrical start/stop and switching has been obsolete since the about 1980. This project will: modernize the electrical power circuit breakers, install variable speed drives to save power and match the pump speed to the water flow needs, install pump monitoring devices to allow remote monitoring and modernize the starters.
Installing this project will allow WLMCD to assure reliable water supply for at least the next 50 years.
The pandemic and big freeze of 2021 affected all the cities and counties of this region. The smaller towns will benefit since they will avoid their proportionate share of these costs. See section 3 of the attached document.
The project will be designed by an engineer familiar with this work, bid vi the Oklahoma state statutes, built by a competent company, inspected , and started up only ater a thorough safety review.
