Oklahoma Water Resources
Oklahoma has varied water resources that are used for agricultural production, support of industrial and municipal activities, recreation, thermoelectric power, and human consumption. The 23 major groundwater aquifers in Oklahoma store more than 320 million acre-feet of water. Oklahoma is home to more than 200 lakes that offer over 1 million surface acres of water and more shoreline than the Gulf and Atlantic coasts combined. While abundant, our water resources must be conserved and protected from pollution and overuse. IPM Oklahoma has supported several projects that help with those goals.
