Water Study Consensus Meeting Set

Plan to join fellow members 6 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 27 at the Schusterman Benson Library at 32nd and Harvard to discuss the Oklahoma Water Study. At the 2011 State convention, delegates approved a  two-year study to expand our current water position. The current water position is several years old and there have been many new developments statewide related to access to clean water, selling Oklahoma water to neighboring states, water rights and conservation efforts. We will discuss the findings and work to come to consensus on a new position.
