OKLAHOMA CITY – The Logan County Rural Water District No. 1, located in southern Logan County between Guthrie and Edmond, received a $1.3 million loan Tuesday from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to facilitate improvements to the district’s water distribution infrastructure. The OWRB approved the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) loan during the panel’s regular monthly meeting.

Rural Water District 1The Logan County water district will use the funding proceeds to construct 53,145 linear feet, or just over 10 miles, of water line, as well as to pay other costs related to the issuance of the loan.  The district’s current water distribution system consists of 370,000 feet, or just over 70 miles, of water lines, as well as one 200 gallon-per-minute booster pump station.  The district, established in 1972,  serves approximately 2,767 water customers.  The district has eight ground water wells, its only source of water, of which seven are active.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB’s Financial Assistance Division, said the DWSRF loan shall be secured with a lien on the revenues of the district’s water and sewer systems.  Robert Thompson, and official with the Logan County RWD No. 1, attended the OWRB’s meeting in support of the loan application.

Since 1983, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board has approved over $3 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to State Senators AJ Griffin and Clark Jolley, and State Representative Jason Murphey, for their support of our financial assistance programs,” said J.D. Strong, executive director of the OWRB.
