Water Research Advisory Board

The Oklahoma Water Resources Center is responsible for developing and coordinating water research funding to address the needs of Oklahoma.

In 2006 a group of state regulators were called together to assist in selecting projects to receive funding. This board, known as the Water Research Advisory Board (WRAB), is comprised of policymakers and other water resource professionals.

Board members meet at least twice each year: summer and winter.

  1. Summer: The summer meeting is held to hear the technical reports from the projects funded during the previous year and to select pre-proposals to continue to the final proposal stage. On August 14, 2019 the Board meets to hear findings from the 2018-funded projects and consider pre-proposals for 2020 funding.
  2. Winter: The focus of the winter meeting is to determine which research projects the Water Center will fund during the upcoming project year and to set the funding priorities for the following project year.

The meetings are open to the public. If you would like to attend, please e-mail
