The Pointe Vista Development is planning to construct a surface water treatment plant to provide potable water to the development and potentially to nearby developments.  The surface water treatment plant will be comprised of an intake structure located at Lake Texoma, a water treatment plant, and a raw water transmission line to transport the water from the intake structure to the water treatment plant.  The system will be located on the west side of Lake Texoma and south of Highway 70.  The intake structure, water treatment plant, and raw water transmission line will be sized for an initial capacity of approximately 4.2 million gallons per day (MGD) of potable water and a full build out capacity of approximately 8.4 MGD of potable water.  The system components will all be designed and constructed to meet the design requirements of the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (ODEQ) for a potable water system.
