Strategic Water Supply meeting open to the public

NORMAN — A Strategic Water Supply Plan public meeting from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday at City Council Chambers, 201 W. Gray St., will be the fourth in a series of public meetings to provide information about the 2060 Water Supply Plan and gather public input.

Norman is updating its plans for supplying long-term water solutions to its customers. The SWSP builds on previous planning efforts discussing water demands, supply options and infrastructure as well as new developments in water supply regulations, technology and availability of water.

Norman is evaluating a wide range of potential water supply sources and identifying those that will best meet the community’s short- and long-term needs. The long-term water supply “portfolio” for Norman will likely include a combination of existing sources and new sources. Sources that passed the initial screening criteria have been combined into portfolios for evaluation in the final phase of the project.

The presentation will include a project update, review of supply options and evaluation criteria and portfolio evaluations.

Meeting participants will have an opportunity to review supply options and provide feedback on the portfolios to be evaluated. This meeting will be televised on the local government Channel 20.
