Legislators focus on water concerns in Oklahoma


As work is underway for the approaching Oklahoma Governor’s Water Conference, Oklahoma legislators were told this week they should do more to develop the underground storage of water in the state.

His testimony came as preparations are underway for the approaching Governor’s Water Conference to be held next month.
