Abstract : The Water Supply Plan was part of the Tulsa Urban study, which was a comprehensive analysis of problems, needs, and opportunities related to water resources in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, metropolitan area. The Tulsa Urban Study area includes, generally, the urban areas and potential urban areas surrounding Tulsa, Oklahoma. This area covers about 1,300 square miles in northeast Oklahoma. Included within the study area are 15 municipalities (of which 12 operate water utility systems) and 19 rural water districts providing water to approximately 520,000 people. The Tulsa Urban Study was conducted by the Tulsa District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Its purpose was to examine the broad and interrelated issues relating to water resources and to develop multipurpose plans to solve problems such as flooding and inadequate water supplies. The Tulsa District entered into a contract with The Benham Group, Inc., of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for the performance of the water supply portion of the Tulsa Urban Study. The objectives of the water supply portion of the study were to develop practical and cost-efficient plans for water supply sources, conveyance, and treatment facilities to meet the long-range needs of the study area.
