OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Replace, repair or slip line problematic sewer lines throughout the City of Bethany. The City of Bethany has spent many many hours, and dollars repairing aging and problematic sewer lines. The raw sewage enters homes, businesses, schools and churches resulting in unsanitary conditions.
The City of Bethany expended over 600,000 in Emergency Sewer expenditures over the past year. Much of this was due to aging lines in poor condition. Replacing these lines will help the City become pro-active instead of reactive where sewer lines are concerned. The attached document shows that over 55% of the city sewer lines are either in blocked, poor or fair condition. This often means these lines have collapsed or are collapsing.
Most citizens and businesses have been impacted in one way or another by COVID. Those who have been most negatively impacted are the poor, disabled, elderly, very young. These populations will benefit by having more reliable infrastructure, particularly remote workers and those who require water to run medical devices. Businesses need clean, safe sewage transmission to operate.
Project performance will be measured by the completion of the sewer line replacements/repair and reporting of a completed project to OK Arpa
