Project Summary

On April 21, 2015, the Broken Arrow Municipal Authority (BAMA) approved three resolutions authorizing a $25.6 million loan application to the Oklahoma Water Resources Board. This loan will finance improvements to the Haikey Creek and Lynn Lane Wastewater Treatment Plants, installation of an automated meter reading (AMR) system, and improvements to the City’s distribution and collection systems. 

Project details are summarized below, or you may download the project summary here.

 2015 BAMA Projects
Haikey Creek Lift Station – Phase 3 Force Main Replacement
This is a multi-phase project to improve pumping and force main capacity. The improvements will capture peak wet-weather events, facilitate future growth and improve system reliability.
Project estimate is $7,800,000 to fund right of way and construction.
Haikey Creek WWTP Flow Equalization Basin (FEB) Expansion and Plant Effluent Water Pump Station  This will expand the FEB to 30 million gallons. The additional storage will keep pace with growth and in conjunction with other improvements to reduce overflows.
Project estimate is $4,030,000 for construction.
Haikey Creek WWTP Activated Sludge Diffused Aeration   The project will include installation of membrane disk diffused aeration in 5 new trains, a new blower building, equipment and piping. The existing system is aging and increasingly unable to meet process oxygen delivery requirements.
Project estimate is $800,000 for design.
Drive-by Automatic Meter Reading System  City crews will over a minimum of 9 years replace existing meters with meters that are read automatically from a vehicle. The project will result in greater accuracy of meter reads, establish efficiency in the collection of water use data and help control staffing and operational costs.
Total estimate is $2,000,000 for purchase of new meters and installation for the first two years.
Lynn Lane Waste Water Treatment Plant and Sewer Collection System This project will install bar screens at five high flow sewer lift stations. The improvements will improve reliability, reduce potential overflow, and minimize service disruptions and unplanned maintenance/repairs.
Project estimate is $2,000,000 for design and construction.
Supervisory Control and Activation System (SCADA)  Installation of this system will provide continuous monitoring of the 29 sewer lift stations and 4 water booster pump stations. The system will allow City crews to respond quickly to emergencies and reduce operation and maintenance costs.
Project estimate is $1,900,000 for construction and setup.  
Oneta Road Sewer Lift Station Rehabilitation This project will improve the safety environment for City crews, improve lift station reliability, reduce potential overflows and reduce service interruptions.
Project estimate is $800,000 for design and construction.  
Engineering Design Projects at the Lynn Lane Waste Water Treatment Plant Headworks screening facility rehabilitation: project will replace screening, provide building modifications and cover area for captured screening disposal. Project will resolve DEQ issues and improve reliability of the plant.
Sludge Digestion System: project is designed to produce higher percentage of solids. The improvements will result in an efficient use of the plant’s 5 blowers, reduce hauling costs to the landfill and reduce power consumption and costs.
Secondary Clarifier Unit: project is the refurbishment of the oldest clarifier. This will improve performance and reliability and reduce unplanned maintenance.
Headworks Grit Classifier: project will replace existing grit classifier that are worn out and replace with higher efficiency units and cover the area for captured grit.
Total estimate is $800,000.
Engineering Design and Right of Way Projects for Sewer System Improvements Elm Creek Trunk Line: project will upsize the line to increase capacity. The existing line is clay, was installed in 1968, is undersized and is exposed at several creek crossings. Improvement will resolve reliability problems and reduce service disruptions.
Oak Crest Addition Collection Line Replacement: project is to replace 23,000 feet of 8 inch lines installed in the 1950’s that have deteriorated. This will improve reliability, reduce overflow and service disruptions.
Haikey Creek Trunk Line Rehabilitation: this project includes 4,300 feet of interceptor slip lining, manhole rehabilitation and line cleaning. This will improve reliability, and reduce potential overflow and service disruptions.
East Haskell Collection Line Replacement: project is to replace 4,600 feet of 8 inch lines installed in the 1950’s that have deteriorated. This will improve reliability, and reduce overflow and service disruptions.
Aspen Creek Relief Line Right of Way: project includes installation of a gravity trunk line from Tucson to Florence and will result in the elimination of 2 lift stations.
Total estimate is $1,360,000.
 Water System Improvements Design and land acquisition of a 2-3 MG Elevated Storage Tank in South Broken Arrow. The 2013 Water Model identifies a need for greater storage in South Broken Arrow. Project estimate is $1,500,000.
Kenwood Hills Booster Pump Station Design and Construction or Rehabilitation: this project would address the obsolescence of the existing station. This will improve reliability, reduce service disruption and improve fire safety. Project estimate is $660,000.
Design and obtain Right of Way for a 24 inch line from the Battle Creek storage tank to the south. The project includes installation of 11,000 feet of line from the 5 MG tank to existing larger diameter signs in the utility system. Project estimate is $950,000.
Design of and obtain Right of Way for a 16 inch water line on Olive from New Orleans to Tucson. This project includes installation of 11,000 feet of line and will eliminate two dead end lines and allow for better circulation and water availability in SW Broken Arrow. Project estimate is $880,000.
Design of a 12 inch water line along Tucson east to 23rd Street. This project includes installation of 2,700 feet of water line and will eliminate two dead end lines and allow for better circulation and water availability in SE Broken Arrow. Project estimate is $100,000.
