Okla. Water Resources Board talks conservation

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN, Okla._ The Oklahoma Water Resources Board held a forum in Duncan Thursday night to discuss water conservation.

The state's dry conditions over the past few years have taken a major toll on local water resources and studies on water supplies have shown it will only get worse for the western part of the state.

"The problem with drought is you just don't know when it's going to be over and so you have to prepare now," says Julie Cunningham, of the board. "I think conservation does start at home, literally. It starts in our homes. I think we need to be cognizant of what we're doing."

Thursday night's forum was one of four the board has planned. The meetings are designed to gather public input on ways to promote water conservation in accordance to the Water for 2060 act that passed Oklahoma legislation in 2012.
