Cowan Group Engineering (CGE) would like to recognize the City of Mustang (City) for their proactive approach and initiative to do their part in reaching the Governor's Water for 2060 goals. The intent of the Governor’s Water for 2060 legislation is for communities in Oklahoma to use the same amount of water in 2060 as was used in 2010. Recently, the City awarded a contract for the Phase II C&D Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements project which includes water reuse to offset the use of drinking water for the City’s irrigation facilities. The new facility will be capable of offsetting up to 30 million gallons of drinking water annually. CGE commends the City of Mustang for their initiative in being the first Oklahoma municipality to be permitted for Category 2 Water Reuse through the Department of Environmental Quality.
