OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
HCRWD #6 needs to rehabilitate a Well house and pumping station (one building) that houses the pumps, controls and treatment facilities. This Pump station supplies potable water to approximately 523 residences' as well as a subsequent rural water district with approximately 350 customers. The freezing disaster that occurred in February of 2021 has left the district in a financial hardship. The preliminary engineering cost estimate is $200,000, to rehabilitate the building that provides security and protection from weather to all the vital equipment and controls. The aerator tank will need to be replaced, to provide operational capacity, and regain compliance with regulations.
HCRWD #6 has to abide by all rules, standards, regulations and statutes, put forth on public water supplies. To ensure a safe, sanitary, well protected water supply is mitigated to remain functional and reliable at all times. In that potable water supply should, by statute, be uninterrupted, and maintain adequate pressure to all services.
Hughes County Rural Water District #6, being a public water supply is the most primary, fundamental, and essential recourse to good health. The demographic of our customers has a significant portion of elderly, and rural residents. The fact we provide to rural areas is significant as well, the travel time to access healthcare, and other services, with limited availability and increased costs, disproportionally impacts our customers.
The plan is to re-sheath the metal building, making any repairs to the structural integrity of the framework as needed, to secure, protect, and stay in compliance with rules, regulations and mandates. The project will not require ongoing funding and has an expected lifespan of 20 years. the timeline of having the engineer prepare all the nessecary documents, go to bid and award a contract. The building sheathing material will have to be removed and the equipment and controls temporarily covered and protected while exposed. A thorough examination of the framework completed, and upon any repairs made, then moving to re-insulate and re-sheath the building as quickly as possible. The existing aerator tank will have to be removed and replaced. A new tank with dimensions and capacity to operate properly will have to be installed with the appurtenances reassembled, sanitized and put back into service. The complete the project should be less than 9 months from start to finish, if we can receive funding assistance.
