Oklahoma Water Pioneers

The Oklahoma Water Pioneer Award was initiated in 1985 to honor the men and women who have made significant contributions in the planning, development, management, and conservation of Oklahoma’s water resources. The award is presented each year at the Oklahoma Governor’s Water Conference to individuals who have been nominated as a gesture of appreciation for their wisdom in developing Oklahoma’s great rivers and groundwaters, and for preserving the integrity and beauty of the state’s waters for future generations.
