OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Replacement of aged cast iron waste water and galvanized supply water lines in Earl Butts Residence Hall. The existing plumbing system is at end of life and needs complete replacement. The buildings was constructed in 1954 and contains 55,286 square feet of space.
Existing facilities are outdated, require excessive maintenance and do not meet the expectation of students in 2022. Wastewater and supply lines are deteriorating and current available funding from our institution only allows for a patch of existing lines to continue operation of residence halls.
The community of Enid, Oklahoma which has approximately 50,000 residents in addition to approximately 800 students of Northern Oklahoma College that either live in residence halls or commute to campus would be impacted. The pandemic forced many College and community events and services to be cancelled, postponed or moved to a virtual setting. Student enrollment experienced a significant decrease in the academic year of 2020-2021 due to the impact of COVID. Community participation in college events was eliminated due to spacing requirements and limitations on facility usage due to the pandemic.
Compilation of the change in the number and frequency of work order requests that are related to wastewater and supply water line issues. Student satisfaction surveys to verify the impact on students and the student learning communities. Tracking of the decrease in funds expended on repairing the existing wastewater and supply lines in the facilities.
