Enid Kaw Lake Water Supply Program Raw Water Transmission Line Pipeline

Borrower: Enid Municipal Authority
Location: Enid, Oklahoma
Invited WIFIA Loan Amount: $53 million
Population Served by Project: 61,000

Project Type: Drinking Water

Project Description

The Kaw Lake Alternative Water Supply Project will ensure the long-term availability of water to Enid residents, Vance Air Force Base, Koch Ag & Energy Solutions, Woodring Regional Airport, outlying industry (including agriculture and oil and gas exploration), neighboring municipalities and rural water customers. The project consists of four primary infrastructure construction projects: (1) a micro-tunnel intake to withdraw water from Kaw Lake; (2) 70-miles of raw water conveyance pipeline; (3) a new 10.5 million gallons per day (MGD) water treatment plant; and (4) distribution system improvements. The purpose of the project is to ensure sufficient water quantity to meet population projections, reduce average day demand on the regional aquifers by 35 percent, and remove 7.5 miles of cast iron pipe, which reduces pipes with lead-sealed joints.
