STERLING - A plan is in motion for the Town of Sterling as officials prepare for an upcoming engineering study that will be looking to improve sections of the town’s water supply system.

Recently awarded with $39,340 through a Rural Economic Action Plan (REAP) Grant issued by the Association of South Central Oklahoma Governments (ASCOG) and with an additional $5,000 provided by the town itself, Sterling Mayor Dale Winkler said they now have enough funds to move forward with the project.

According to the project description, the engineering study will determine what work will be necessary and at what cost, to upgrade the current water supply system. Plans include replacing main water lines that are currently less than six inches in diameter, installing two additional fire hydrants “to improve firefighting capability” and replacing the existing two inch water line on Oliver Street, going west from 2nd to 5th Street, with a larger four inch line.
