State Lawmaker Doug Cox Envisions Building Pipelines to Move Eastern Oklahoma Water Westward

State Lawmaker Doug Cox Envisions Building Pipelines to Move Eastern Oklahoma Water Westward The three northeastern counties that Oklahoma State lawmaker Doug Cox represents includes two of the three counties in the state of Oklahoma that have no oil or gas actitivity- and the crown jewel of his District is Grand Lake. That means that Doug Cox sits right in the middle of one of the excess water areas in Oklahoma. And, the Grove, Oklahoma State Representative believes that state officials would be smart to figure out how to move the surplus water from eastern Oklahoma into central and western counties of the state.

Cox appeared on the opening afternoon of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Legislative Conference- and he told the 120 County Farm Bureau leaders that as clean water become more scarce, it becomes more important that Oklahoma plan for the future and consider ways to build pipelines to move water- and locations where it can be stored until needed in the western areas of the state.

Cox told Farm Bureau members in earlier years that he thought this all about getting water into areas where agriculture needs it- but now he believes moving water from east to west is essential for drinking water in our populated areas of the state as well.

After his presentation, Representative Cox talked with Radio Oklahoma Network Director of Farm Programming Ron Hays about his water ideas and how he envisions Oklahoma using the resources available in state.
