OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
Two water wells along Flood Avenue were inactivated in 2006 due to MCL changes to the Arsenic Rule by EPA for potable water. This project would reconnect these wells with a non-potable line by sliplining an inactive 16-inch diameter waterline along Flood Avenue. They would then be connected to a non-potable line on Newton Drive to be used for irrigation and a truck wash center. This would allow for water conservation measures that lessen the demand on potable water sources.
The Water Conservation Plan and Strategic Water Supply Plan created by the NUA illustrate the need for increased water with increases in the population. Conserving water by providing a non-potable source from inactive water wells will lower the demand on drinking water.
All communities in Norman will benefit from this project. By conserving our water and proving non-potable sources, the need for increased water each year decreases, lowering the impact to the community.
Once the project is complete, NUA will bill those using the non-potable water a rate similar to that already provided to the University of Oklahoma for irrigating their golf course with wastewater effluent from the Water Reclamation Facility. NUA will provide regular maintenance on the wells and waterlines.
