The Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust outlined a five-year plan for water and sewer improvements, which will cost about $653 million. About $488 will be spent on sewers, the rest on wastewater drainage and treatment.

According to a report in The Oklahoman, the plan includes a water treatment facility at Lake Hefner, expansion of water lines from the Lake Stanley Draper reservoir, and construction on a second Atoka Pipeline.

ENR reports the pipeline will be a 100-mile, 60-in.-diameter supplement an existing pipeline.
