With the 20-year agreement, Coyle agrees to pay GPWA for water purchased at the initial effective normal usage rate of $5.57 per 1,000 gallons.

The project is set at $480,000 with engineering fees estimated at $140,000. Funding for the project will be secured with a (100 percent) forgivable loan through DEQ and Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.

GPWA, who currently sells water to Langston University, will construct a six-inch diameter water line extending east from the main entrance of Langston University to Coyle’s water system. The length of the water line is approximately 7,100 feet.
