State Dam Loan/Grant Funding Program  

Oklahoma has a funding program to assist dam owners with repair, abandonment, or removal of dams.

Owner must be a political subdivision of the state and the reservoir is being used a source of public water supply. Grants are awarded if an emergency exists and based on a priority point system. Loans are made based on borrower's repayment comparability.
