Research Project: Monitoring and Evaluating Water Resources in Upper Washita River Basin

Location: Agroclimate and Natural Resources Research

Project Number: 3070-13000-012-07-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2014
End Date: Aug 31, 2019

Objective:
The objective of this cooperative research project is to conduct a field investigation to support hydrologic research and provide a database on stream flow and water quality in the Little Washita River and Fort Cobb Reservoir Lake Experimental Watersheds.

Approach:
Streams in the Little Washita River and Fort Cobb Reservoir watersheds in central Oklahoma will be monitored for gauge height and flow. Measurements are made on a continuous basis. Data are quality processed, analyzed, and archived. Data are used in hydrologic analyses and with environmental and water resource models. Water quality samplers will be installed in the Fort Cobb watershed.
