History of Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Phosphorus Criteria
Read Important Documents Tracing the Development of Oklahoma's Scenic River Phosphorus Limit...(posted 1/17/17)
The Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB), the Oklahoma Scenic Rivers Commission (OSRC) and Save the Illinois River (STIR) cooperated in 2002 in order to adopt a numeric phosphorus limit for Oklahoma Scenic Rivers.  The limit of 0.037 mg/L of total phosphorus was immediately opposed by northwest Arkansas cities and industries.  The conflict between Arkansas and Oklahoma over the Illinois River is decades old.  Perhaps the dispute has been resolved with agreement on the Scenic Rivers Joint Study.  Below are some important documents about the history of the phosphorus limit for Oklahoma Scenic Rivers.
