The Middle Verdigris Watershed (HUC 11070103) spans across 2,757 square miles in northeastern Oklahoma. The watershed is hydrologically connected to the Arkansas River Basin and contains a diverse array of landscapes, including forests, grasslands, and wetlands. Snowfall in the area is variable, but typically occurs during the winter months and can contribute to the watershed’s surface water and reservoirs. The watershed’s surface water is used for drinking, irrigation, and recreation, and is affected by agricultural activities and urban development. Interesting climatic trends in the area include increasing temperatures and changing precipitation patterns. Additionally, drought and flooding events have become more frequent and intense in recent years, highlighting the need for sustainable water management practices. The Middle Verdigris Watershed is an important natural resource that supports a variety of ecological, social, and economic functions, and requires careful management to ensure its long-term health and viability.
