GB)--The city of Enid broke ground Tuesday on the treatment plant for the Kaw Lake Water Pipeline project. When completed, the Kaw Lake project, the largest capital project in the city’s history, will provide the residents of Enid and Northwest Oklahoma with 10.5 million gallons of water a day from the Kay/Osage County lake. Tuesday morning, city of Enid officials and project engineers marked the start of construction on the city’s water treatment plant, to be located at 6323 W. Chestnut, at the end of the pipeline. The intake site at Kaw Lake also has begun construction, but work is yet to begin on the actual pipeline running 70 miles from the lake to Enid, as well as a pump station in Garber.
