Five-year Agreement adds to the company’s growing presence in the Sooner State.

Horsham, Pa., September 28, 2021 — Inframark, LLC, is pleased to announce that the Oklahoma City Water Utilities Trust (OCWUT) has awarded the company a five-year partnership for operations, maintenance, and repair services for water and wastewater systems for Tinker Air Force Base (TAFB). The contract commenced in August 2021. The addition of TAFB builds on the company’s growing presence in the Sooner State, where we also operate seven other projects including OCWUT’s wastewater facilities that treat more than 110 million gallons per day (MGD).

“Oklahoma City is strongly committed to helping the United States Air Force by ensuring that its water and wastewater systems remain reliable to meet the government’s mission. The selection of Inframark to provide daily operations and maintenance services will assist us in meeting this commitment” said Chris Browning, Trust General Manager.

Children, seniors, and persons with weakened immune systems are particularly vulnerable to harmful bacteria, and all customers should follow these directions). To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and ice making should be boiled and cooled prior to use for drinking water or human consumption purposes. The water should be brought to a vigorous rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes.
