East Okla. Lawmakers Criticize 50-year Water Plan (Jun 06, 2011)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A 50-year plan for the use of water in Oklahoma that is not yet finalized is already drawing criticism from eastern Oklahoma lawmakers.

State Reps. Ed Cannaday, Brian Renegar, and Jerry Ellis and Sen. Richard Lerblance are asking for an attorney general's opinion on whether the company developing the plan — Massachusetts-based CDM — has a conflict of interest.

They say CDM also has a contract to study bringing water from Sardis Lake in southeast Oklahoma into central Oklahoma.

CDM officials did not return phone calls for comment. Oklahoma Water Resources Board director J.D. Strong told The Oklahoman there is no suggestion in the state water plan that Sardis Lake water should be moved to central Oklahoma.

A spokeswoman for the attorney general says the request is under review.
