State water officials have announced a series of public meetings across the state on various water conservation plans designed to mitigate water use over the next 50 years.
The Oklahoma Water Resources Board, which is hosting the meetings, announced the dates Monday. They will be held March 11 at the Oklahoma Panhandle State University campus in Goodwell, March 12 at the Quartz Mountain Resort near Altus, and March 13 at the Simmons Center in Duncan. Each meeting will begin at 6 p.m.
The meeting locations were selected to target agriculture producers, water providers and those living in or near so-called "hot spot" planning basins that are projected to have the most serious water supply challenges over the next several decades.
