OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The Town of Wayne has unmapped galvanized water lines in service that contribute to poor water quality. These pipes are well beyond there recommended useful lifespan and have multiple leaks causing water loss and extra costs for repairs. There are unmapped water valves and inoperable water valves that also must be mapped, then replaced, or repaired. Operators can not isolate sections of the Town to make repairs, water service has been suspended multiple time to the entire Town for repairs rather than just sections.
Multiple leak repairs on lines that were not mapped, or showed to be out of service. Operators should be able to locate and operate valves to isolate areas in the water system as well as eliminate any old galvanized lines.
The Town of Wayne is a small rural community with limited recourses. According to the 2020 US Census, 45.40% of the population in Wayne rent their homes, 14.52% are below the poverty rate and 16.47% are minorities. Of the residents below the poverty rate, 31.5% are minorities, and 17.55% are over the age of 55.
