Maud Municipal Authority Receives $39,999 Grant for Wastewater System Improvements

The Maud Municipal Authority (Authority) received approval for a $39,999 Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) grant Tuesday through the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the Authority’s wastewater infrastructure.

The Authority owns and operates a wastewater collection system that serves approximately 1,046 residents. As a result of sewer line deterioration, inflow and infiltration of water is flowing into the collection system. The proposed project includes the installation of electronic flow meters at three sewer system lift stations. The improvements will allow the tracking of the flow into the system which will also assist in identifying portions of the collection system for future improvements.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB's Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the grant will save the Authority’s customers $71,998 in principal and interest charges, by not having to borrow the project funds. Since 1983 the Water Resources Board has approved over $3.3 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to State Senator Susan Paddack and State Representative Josh Cockroft for their continued support of water and wastewater infrastructure funding in Oklahoma,” said J.D. Strong, OWRB Executive Director.
