About the Area:

The Cimarron River flows east from the far northeastern New Mexico through central Oklahoma, and then flows into Keystone Lake. The entire basin area covers roughly 16,142 sq. miles (41,808 sq. km). Within Oklahoma only, the basin covers approximately 8,060 sq. miles. The Oklahoma EPSCoR team has focused much of their effort on the eastern-most portion of this watershed, which covers approximately 1,386 sq. miles. This watershed encompasses several lakes, all of which are located in the EPSCoR study area: Lake Carl Blackwell, Lake McMurtry, and Keystone Lake.
