What are you doing for #WorldWaterDay? Oklahoma has approximately 55,646 miles of shoreline along lakes and ponds. Oklahoma contains approximately 1,401 square miles of water area in its lakes and ponds (larger than the state of Rhode Island). Oklahoma is underlain by 22 major groundwater basins Approximately 56% of this Oklahoma's water use comes from surface water sources and 44% from groundwater sources. While many regions in Oklahoma are blessed with an abundant water supply, other areas of the state are not. In the past few years Oklahoma has seen an extreme drought worse than the Dust Bowl era, severe flooding, and devastating tornados. Quantity and sometimes the quality of water available in our state has emphasized the need to protect this valuable asset through conservation and reuse.
