TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – The Cherokee Nation recently received a contribution of PVC water pipe valued at $13,000 from Cherokee Builders, Inc., a privately owned business located in Tulsa.
 

The pipe will be used in area communities as new waterlines are constructed.



“I know Cherokee Nation sometimes puts in water lines for various communities and we had extra materials that we were unable to use, so I wanted to make this contribution to benefit the citizens of communities in need, instead of letting them go to waste,” Cherokee Builders President Dick McNair said.



Billy Hix, director of CN Environmental Health and Engineering, said the tribe has provided approximately 10 communities with new water lines through Community Services self-help projects over the past three years and that the Cherokee Builders contribution is welcome.



“The pipe that was contributed will be used as casing material for future waterline projects,” Hix said. “It will be great for areas where the waterline has to cross roads or driveways.” 



Hix said the water pipe that was contributed is a high-quality product, known to be one of the strongest and most commonly used PVC plastic pipes available.

The contribution included a total of 1,800 linear feet of water pipe in 20-inch segments.
