Mission & Responsibilities
The mission of the OWRB is to protect and enhance the quality of life for Oklahomans by managing and improving the state’s water resources to ensure clean and reliable water supplies, a strong economy, and a safe and healthy environment.
Our primary duties and responsibilities include water use appropriation and permitting, water quality monitoring and standards, financial assistance for water/wastewater systems, dam safety, floodplain management, water supply planning, technical studies and research, and water resource mapping.
The updated 2019-2023 OWRB Strategic Plan is a dynamic, "living" document that not only provides direction for the agency, but demonstrates the substantial commitment and dedication of agency staff in providing safe and dependable water supplies for all Oklahomans, both today and in the future.
