Guymon To Receive State Funding

KSCB News - June 8, 2009 12:00 am

The Oklahoma Water Resource Board (OWRB) held a meeting in April that resulted in conservation grants for six community projects. According to a report in the Guymon Daily Herald. Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP) grants were awarded to community projects in Norman, Tahlequah, Sparrow, Hawk Village, Stillwater, Shawnee and Guymon.

The Water Conservation Grant Program, administered by the OWRB, was created through the passage of House Bill 3135 last year. Under the bill’s provision’s, the OWRB has made $35,000 available for the implementation of water conservation projects. One of which is The City of Guymon’s Fire Station One Xeriscape: Incorporation of “green building strategies” with installation of rainwater and snowmelt collection and grey water systems for fire truck maintenance, tank filling and watering landscaped areas. The facility will also incorporate xeriscaping and drought tolerant/native landscaping.

Xeriscaping is a type of landscaping that conserves water by planting native, water-efficient plants rather than water-intensive ones, and utilizes techniques that minimize the need for irrigation. The Guymon Fire Station is set to receive $5,603.
