NORMAN, Okla. — More than a dozen central Oklahoma communities could team up to pay $2.3 billion to build a pipeline that would transport water from the southeastern part of the state.
A study prepared for the cities by the engineering company CDM suggested that the plan connecting to Sardis Lake and the Kiamichi River would be the cheapest option to bring in water from southeastern Oklahoma.
Oklahoma City's share would be about $1 billion under that plan, which is aimed at quenching the region's water needs through at least 2060. A CDM representative presented the plan to the Norman City Council this week.
Other cities involved in the proposed plan include Edmond, Midwest City, Mustang, Yukon, Shawnee and Moore.
No action has been taken on the proposal.
