North Canadian River Watershed

About the Area:

The North Canadian River flows east from roughly the Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas corner to east central Oklahoma, where it then flows into Lake Eufaula. In the Oklahoma Panhandle, this river also goes by the name Beaver River. The entire basin area covers roughly 15,038 sq. miles (38,948 sq. km). Within Oklahoma only, the basin covers approximately 9,097 sq. miles. This watershed encompasses several lakes: Optima Lake, Canton Lake, Lake Overholser, and Lake Eufaula. The Oklahoma EPSCoR team has focused much of their effort on the middle portion of this watershed, which covers approximately 1,849 sq. miles, part of which lies within the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area.
