Troubled Water: A Deep Dive Into Oklahoma’s Most Precious Resource by StateImpact 2/27/2013

Joe Wertz and Logan Layden of StateImpact report on some of Oklahoma's water issues, including reservoirs, aging infrastructure, policy, and planning.

In many ways, the history of Oklahoma is a story of water. Our geography is drawn by rivers and streams. And our cultural legacy is informed by drought.

History, money and consumption have shaped Oklahoma water policy. Here’s a look at the role each part plays in the plan policymakers are writing to protect what former governor and U.S. senator Robert S. Kerr called, the state’s “most blessed resource.”
