Sentinel Public Works Authority Receives $75,700 Grant for Water System Improvements

The Sentinel Public Works Authority (Authority) in Washita County received approval for a $75,700 Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) grant Tuesday through the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the Authority’s water infrastructure.

The Authority owns and operates a water system that serves a population of 901. The distribution system consists of cast iron and transite pipe waterlines. The proposed project includes replacing deteriorating cast iron and transite pipes with 1,050 linear feet of new 8-inch PVC water line, as well as other related construction.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB's Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the grant will save the Authority’s customers $136,260 in principal and interest charges, by not having to borrow the project funds. Since 1983 the Water Resources Board has approved over $3.2 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to State Senator Mike Schulz and State Representative Todd Russ for their continued support of water and wastewater infrastructure funding in Oklahoma,” said J.D. Strong, OWRB Executive Director.
