The Cherokee Development Authority (Authority) received approval for a $73,000 Emergency Grant from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the Authority's wastewater infrastructure. The loan proposal was written and submitted by Cardinal Engineering, Inc. on behalf of the Authority.
The Authority has experienced raw sewage buildup after having two pumps fail at the system's main lift station. The Authority has been operating a back-up pump, but is in need of a long-term solution. The proposed project will replace the failed lift station with two submersible pumps on rails, equipped with controls and alarms. The total cost of the project is $210,000 which will be funded by the OWRB Emergency Grant in the amount of $73,000 and $137,000 in local funds.
Cardinal Engineering's own, Cole Bond, P.E., will serve as project engineer for this project.
Since 1983, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board has approved over $3.9 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.
