Noble County Rural Water Sewer & Solid Waste Management District (RWS & SWMD) #4 Receives $99,999 Grant for Water System Improvements

The Noble County RWS & SWMD #4 (District) received approval for a $99,999 Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) grant Tuesday through the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the District’s water infrastructure.

A number of the water lines in the District's water distribution service area do not meet the demand of the users, and the older lines do not maintain adequate water pressure and volume. The proposed project includes water line replacement, installation of gate valves, and other related construction to help increase water pressure in the system. The projected cost of the project is $99,999.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB's Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the grant will save the District’s customers $179,998 in principal and interest charges, by not having to borrow the project funds. Since 1983 the Water Resources Board has approved over $3.5 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to Senator A.J. Griffin and Representative John Pfeiffer for their continued support of water and wastewater infrastructure funding in Oklahoma,” said Julie Cunningham, OWRB Interim Executive Director.
