Sample Projects

Oklahoma City Atoka Pipeline Design

Oklahoma City receives a significant portion of its water from southeastern Oklahoma via a 100-mile-long, 60-inch diameter, pre-stressed concrete cylinder pipeline (PCCP) that was originally installed in the early 1960s.

East Fork Water Reuse Project

As the largest project in Texas using reclaimed water to augment a surface water supply source, the East Fork Water Reuse Project provides the NTMWD with over 102,000 acre-feet of water per year.
