The Oklahoma Water Resource Board has the authority to make rules for the control of sanitation on all property located within any reservoir or drainage basin. The Board works with the Department of Environmental Quality to ensure that disposal systems meet regulatory requirements.
Lakes, bodies of water, or reservoirs owned or controlled by any city, town or municipality of Oklahoma are exempt, unless they voluntarily opt in for regulation by the Board.
