Quinlan Community RWD No. 1 Receives $80,000 Grant for Water System Improvements

The Quinlan Community Rural Water District No. 1 (District) in Woodward County received approval Tuesday for an $80,000 Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) grant through the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the District’s water infrastructure.

One of the District's three water wells is experiencing reduced production and the distribution system is in need of additional improvements. The proposed project includes rehabilitating the impacted water well, replacing the well's water pump, constructing a common point of entry into the water storage standpipe for all three water wells, and constructing a chlorine building with new control wiring.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB's Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the grant will save the Authority’s customers $144,000 in principal and interest charges, by not having to borrow the project funds. Since 1983 the Water Resources Board has approved over $3.4 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to Senator Bryce Marlatt and Representative Jeff Hickman for their continued support of water and wastewater infrastructure funding in Oklahoma,” said J.D. Strong, OWRB Executive Director.
