Groundwater Monitoring and Assessment Program


Created in 1998, the Oklahoma Water Resources Board's Beneficial Use Monitoring Program (BUMP) was developed in response to a growing awareness that key water quality management decisions were being made based on inadequate or incomplete data. Today, BUMP data provides critical information to support Oklahoma's Water Quality Standards and prioritize pollution control activities.

Until the 2012 Legislative Session BUMP included two funded components of lakes and streams. In the coming year a third groundwater component will be implemented as well.

Lakes monitoring employs fixed stations on approximately 130 lakes statewide sampled on a five-year rotation. Stream monitoring includes 103 river and stream sites with both fixed and rotating stations sampled each year. Currently unfunded components include fixed station load monitoring and intensive investigation sampling. Detailed explanations of the sampling regimes and their results can be found in the BUMP Report.

Specific objectives of BUMP are to detect and quantify long-term water quality trends, document and quantify impairments of assigned beneficial uses, and identify pollution problems before they become a pollution crisis.

  • In a river or stream, what is the impact of development on turbidity and how are turbidity trends affecting water or wastewater treatment costs and fish and wildlife habitat?
  • At what point do wastewater discharges exceed a stream's capacity to assimilate those wastes?
  • What are the specific effects of excessive agricultural or urban fertilizers, pesticides and related pollutants?

BUMP data has become indispensable to sound decision-making. Problem areas can now be identified before mitigation activities become too costly or are ineffective. BUMP enables the development of targeted pollution control and remediation programs. Pollution "hot spots" can be identified and activities can be modified to reduce pollution stress on waterbodies.

Ongoing state water quality monitoring through BUMP ensures that future generations of Oklahomans will be able to make fair and defensible decisions concerning both the quality and quantity of future supplies critical to the continued growth and welfare of the state. BUMP data will be an indispensible component in implementation of the Oklahoma Comprehensive Water Plan.
