OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Comanche; Cotton; Jefferson; Stephens
Replace 8 of 16 pump motors and 8 of 16 pumps. Replacement of these motors and pumps will enable WLMCD to continue efficient operations. The motor sizes are 700, 600, 400 and 200 Horsepower. They are designed to operate continuously. Typical non-drought WLMCD operations cause on/off operation of the motors and increases wear. These motors have been rebuilt multiple times and are near the end of useful life. The pumps that are tied to the 700 and 400 HP motors are 90 feet long and are also subject to on/off operation. It is more cost efficient to replace rather than rebuild. The 600 HP pumps are horizontal and are obsolete. They have been rebuilt and will be at the end of useful life in the next few years. The 200 HP pumps have seen 2 of the 4 replaced already due to on off operation.
With new pumps and motors, the cost per gallon will reduce and the pumps and motors will be more reliable
All 6 cities were impacted, both in ability for people to work and provide taxes and in the difficulty keeping the water infrastructure online during the bad February weather.
The pumps and motors will be specified by an engineer, paying attention to reliability, efficiency and "robustness". The best long term cost of ownership will be determined. Then project bidding.
