ADA – East Central University’s Oka’ Institute was among the participating parties at the Oklahoma Water Resources Board’s 14th Annual Water Appreciation Day held recently at the Oklahoma State Capitol.
The daylong event, which was held despite construction at the State Capitol, was designed to celebrate the importance of Oklahoma’s water resources and provide education to the public on how Oklahomans can protect, conserve and manage their water resources. Promotional/educational items were handed out to those who attended.
Among other agencies represented were the United State Geological Survey, Oklahoma Water Resources Board, Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality and several other organizations.
