Public Meetings for Kaw Lake Water Supply Project Held
ENID,OK (April 14, 2017) -
Developing the future water supply for Enid and northwest Oklahoma was the topic of discussion at two recently held public meetings. On April 11, Autry Tech in Enid was the site for the first public meeting and the Ponca City Central Library was the location for the April 13 meeting.
Director of Engineering for the City of Enid Chris Gdanski said, "I was very pleased with the turn-out and we were excited to share the program with the public. We received a lot of good comments and enjoyed the public’s input and candor."
Currently, the project is in phase two of a seven-year program to secure water resources from Kaw Lake for the next five decades.
Enid City Manager Jerald Gilbert said, "These first public meetings were to discuss the Kaw Lake project and the various components with the public. Specific invitations were mailed out to landowners in the vicinity of the projected direct pipeline route. City staff along with staff from the consultant group Garver were present to answer questions in general."
City Manager Gilbert added, "We are committed in keeping the public informed on this water supply project that involves the building of an pipeline of approximately 70 miles." Future updates regarding the pipeline project will be available on the City of Enid website www.Enid.org.
