The nation’s widespread severe drought is straining water resources across many parts of the country. But Oklahoma is in a relatively good position water-wise when compared to other states, with a myriad of underground aquifers, lakes and reservoirs. However, the fight for water is still on. Oklahoma City and Texas want water from southeast Oklahoma. So, how do we balance the need for water in populated areas with conservation efforts, tourism, and the rights of American Indian tribes. Is water the next oil? We’ll discuss the needs and the balance at Policy and a Pint, Wednesday, August 29th at 6 p.m. at Picasso Café in Oklahoma City’s Paseo District.
