Oklahoma tribe in line to buy ailing water district

The Citizen Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma is on track to buy an ailing rural water district.

Pottawatomie County commissioners passed a resolution allowing the sale of the South Pottawatomie County Rural Water District No. 3 to the tribe. The district is about $2.7 million in debt and is behind more than $150,000 on three federal loans.

The purchase will still need to be approved by the state Water Resources Board. The amount the tribe is offering is not being disclosed.
