OKLAHOMA CITY —The Towns of Bromide and Ravia of Johnston County received over $40,000 in state grants recently for wastewater system improvements, state Sen. Jay Paul Gumm (D-Durant) and state Rep. Paul Roan (D-Tishomingo) announced recently.

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce/ Office of Community Development awarded the grants in the 2006 Community Development Block Grant Water and Wastewater (Phase I) Engineering Set-Aside. 

This Set-Aside was developed to fund water and wastewater projects that require more than one year to complete through a "phased approach".

Improvements to the Town of Bromide will include the replacement/upgrade of sewer lines and manholes, and lagoon repairs will allow the community to come into compliance with the Department of Environmental Quality discharge regulations. 

The Town of Ravia will apply funds to construct improvements to the existing sewer system including lift station replacement.  Currently, the lift station does not meet Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality standards and has experienced recent failures.
