RWD No. 3 considering new pipeline from Owasso

CLAREMORE — Improved infrastructure and a wider line to the Owasso area were among the topics discussed by the Rogers County Rural Water District No. 3 at its Sept. board meeting.

Officials are looking for the most effective way to improve water access and meet the challenges of a growing community.

The proposed changes will improve water access for Keetonville area customers.

After the weather events this past summer, officials at RWD No. 3 have been working prevent future water shortages.

Some of the projects currently put into place include phase one and two of the Keetonville area and river pump station. The line will be getting a larger pump to meet the demands of a newly mandated chlorination process.

Water being purchased from Tulsa will be required to use chlorination that allows water to travel farther distances without loosing integrity.

“The longer the distance water is able to travel the better our services will be for customers,” said Rick Stoll, district manager.

The chlorination process will begin this week for the Tulsa water supply.

After completion of this project the board will determine if the addition of the feed from Owasso will be feasible.

The proposed 12-inch line will be installed west of 209th East Avenue allowing those customers to be supplied from the Owasso side of the District.

Once competed this would reduce the number of customers served by the Keetonville tower by 75 percent to about 150, according to Stull.”

If we choose to open up both sides then we will add additional equipment to use the chlorination process currently being put into place for the Tulsa water supply,” he said. “We are in the process of engineering the project on 209 road and running models. The decision is about a month out.”
