Cherokee Nation and its businesses partnered with the town of West Siloam Springs to upgrade its public works infrastructure. The $2.2 million partnership brought the Delaware County town a new water storage tank, a new pump station and updated waterlines. The project is an effort to provide better service to the town’s residents and businesses.
“When we would go out to try to recruit businesses to our town, we couldn’t get them to locate here because of needed water infrastructure improvements,” said Elaine Carr, mayor of West Siloam Springs. “The water system improvements Cherokee Nation made are going to help our town grow. Cherokee Nation is a wonderful partner to our city of West Siloam Springs.”
