The most recently published OCWP update includes an Executive Report, 13 Watershed Planning Region reports, and many additional technical study findings and reports that can be found on the Scientific Reports page.
An intensive public participation and policy development process was integral to the development of the 2012 update, resulting in various recommendations that are being implemented across the state. Key focus areas for implementation have included water conservation, efficiency, and reuse through the Water for 2060 act; increasing water project and infrastructure financing; increasing data collection and coordinating statewide monitoring activities; addressing fish and recreation flows; defining excess and surplus flows; assisting with regional planning efforts; and bolstering partnerships between the State of Oklahoma and Tribal Nations.
Significant progress has been made in all of the focus areas through state and federal legislative actions as well as local policy development and industry initiatives. Policymakers across Oklahoma rely heavily on OCWP analyses and recommendations to determine priorities.
