About Surface Water Studies

OWRB surface water studies are conducted on Oklahoma streams and lakes across the state for a variety of purposes. Hydrologic investigations are conducted to determine water use patterns and for the administration and adjudication of water rights. Hydrologic investigations have been completed on all of the state's stream systems, and updates of these studies are underway. Data gathered from streamflow and discharge monitoring sites can also be used for many purposes, including flood prediction and drought monitoring.

Lake restoration activities include application of the latest technology to Oklahoma's eutrophied lakes. OWRB staff are frequently involved in sediment removal, oxygenation, shoreline revegetation, and erosion control projects across the state. The OWRB also conducts or supervises studies of reservoir yield that are critical to determining the amount of water supply available.
