Oklahoma Water Appreciation Day Set for May 19

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The Oklahoma Water Resources Board is preparing to host the ninth annual Oklahoma Water Appreciation Day at the state Capitol.

The May 19 event will feature water agency and organization booths and displays that focus on Oklahoma's diverse water resources.

Water board executive director J.D. Strong says the event provides an opportunity to highlight the importance of Oklahoma's water resources and provide information on water management, conservation and educational programs. Strong says the exhibition is particularly appropriate now that the state is in its fourth straight year of drought.

The board is implementing its Water for 2060 statewide water conservation campaign with the goal of maintaining water usage at current levels through 2060. Officials are looking at ways to implement the plan while meeting increasing demands and avoiding predicted shortages.
