OKLAHOMA CITY –The City Of Clinton (City) received approval for $1,262,382 in funding Thursday from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to improve the City’s water infrastructure. Construction of upgrades and improvements to the water system will be financed by the Oklahoma American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant program along with $1,262,382 in local funds.
The City owns and operates a water treatment plant (WTP) that is experiencing a chlorine gas leak which has damaged and corroded their filter equipment. These proceeds will be used to build a chlorine gas storage building to house new gas feed and storage equipment.
Joe Freeman, chief of the OWRB’s Financial Assistance Division, calculated that the City’s customers will save an estimated $2,072,600 compared to traditional financing.
