OKLAHOMANS PROJECTED TO BENEFIT
ESTIMATED PROJECT DURATION
The Wayne Water Treatment Plant is an iron and manganese removal facility. Treatment consists of oxidizing raw well water and using pressure filters to remove the oxidized iron and manganese. The pressure filter is backwashed regularly to prevent plugging. Backwashing is performed using pressure from the Town?s storage facilities. This pressure does not produce enough flow to adequately clean the filter. The Town proposes to install backwash pumps that will provide the flow necessary for proper cleaning of the filter.
Sullivan engineering and PurFlow - Both agree the backflow is not sufficient for filter cleaning. Operators tested backflow rate under multiple conditions and could not bring the backflow rate above 550gpm. The water treatment plant specs require at least 660gpm to clean the filter media
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.
Daily water sample tests will be performed at the plant to determine the iron and manganese levels and read flow meters to monitor back flow rate.
