NORMAN — The Norman Utilities Authority received a $50.3 million loan Tuesday from the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB) to facilitate Phase 2 of the current Norman Water Reclamation Facility project. The OWRB approved the Clean Water State Revolving Fund loan during the panel’s regular monthly meeting on Tuesday.

The loan proceeds will be used for Phase 2 improvements to the Norman Water Reclamation Facility which include upgrades to the existing wastewater treatment plant.

Norman officials attending the OWRB’s monthly meeting in support of the loan application included Ken Komiske, director of utilities, and Mark Daniels, utilities engineer.

Since 1983, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board has approved over $3 billion in loans and grants for water and wastewater infrastructure improvements throughout Oklahoma.

“We are grateful to the state legislators of the Norman community for their support of our financial assistance programs,” said J.D. Strong, executive director of the OWRB.
