OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The purpose of the project will be to rehabilitate Weleetka Lake Dam. The dam is in poor condition and serves a population of approximately 1,000 people. The primary purpose of this dam is public water supply with a local interest in recreational fishing. The funding will be utilized for the design and construction to reduce the dam's risk of failure and increase community preparedness.
Weleetka Lake Dam has a primary purpose for public water supply and a secondary purpose of recreation. The dam is a critical resource for the Town of Weleetka. The dam is over 80 years old and its condition has declined over time. Repairs are now required that are beyond everyday operation and maintenance. Financial interventions are needed for the Weleetka Public Works Authority to rehabilitate the dam.
This project will rehabilitate Weleetka Lake Dam, which serves the Town of Weleetka. The scope of the needed worked far exceeds the annual revenue received by the Authority and cannot be complete without financial assistance.
The community will consult with an engineering firm and OWRB to complete the proposed project. The project performance will be measured by the improvement in the condition rating of the dam, and therefore the reduction of risk to downstream communities and water customers.
