Press Release

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Big Cabin Public Works Authority (Authority) received approval for a $926,286 loan Tuesday from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the Authority’s wastewater infrastructure.  Construction of upgrades and improvements to the wastewater system will be financed by a 100% principal forgiveness loan through the Oklahoma Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF).

The Authority will utilize these proceeds to relocate the force main by installing approximately 11,000 linear feet (LF) of 6-inch force main piping directly to the existing wastewater treatment facility. These improvements will help to alleviate the load on the current gravity system by increasing capacity and implementing diversion, improving community conditions, and decreasing unintended discharge and overflows.

Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB’s Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the Authority’s customers will save an estimated $1,430,700 compared to traditional financing.
