Oklahoma's 50-year Water Plan: What Can You Do?

The Oklahoma Water Plan is designed to preserve and protect our state's water supply for the next 50 years. Several Sustainable Shawnee members have participated in the public portion of the plan but there's still an opportunity for interested citizens to have their voice heard.

The last public input meeting for our area will take place at OSU-OKC on May 25th - additional details to follow. In the meantime, read over the Oklahoma Water Plan town hall meeting report held in May 2010. The final report will be delivered to the legislature in 2012.

Sustainable Shawnee hopes to hold a Green Chat with Dr. Joe Taron, Oklahoma Water Resources Board Member, in April 2011. Dr. Taron will discuss the Oklahoma Water Plan and other local water issues.
