OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
more than 24 months
The purpose of this project will be to rehabilitate Lake Clinton's earthen dam. The dam is in unsatisfactory condition which must be remedied in order to continue to serve as Clinton's primary water supply serving a population of approximately 12,000 people. The requested funding of $750,000 would be utilized to do technical planning , design and construction work to remedy deficiencies noted in the 2021 Dam Inspection Report. The likelihood of this dam failing is unacceptable in term of possible loss of life and property as well as the City's primary water supply.
Lake Clinton dam has as its primary purpose of impounding water for use as the primary water supply for Clinton. Limited recreation opportunities also occur at the lake. The dam was constructed in 1930 and its condition has degraded over time. The repairs which are now needed are beyond the scope of everyday operation and maintenance. Financial interventions (assistance) are needed for Clinton to rehabilitate this dam as desperately needed.
The Lake Clinton dam rehabilitation project serves Oklahoma citizens in and near Clinton, OK. Like many rural communities the impact of the pandemic took place in multiple fashions which have diminished the City's financial ability to fund this work.
The City of Clinton will consult with the OK Water Resources Board and a consulting engineer firm to complete the proposed project. The project performance will be measured by the tangible improvement of the dam's condition and therefore the reduction of the risk of downstream flooding should the dam breach, as well as maintaining the lake as the primary water source.
