About the verdigris river
The Verdigris River is a tributary of the Arkansas River and runs through Kansas and Oklahoma. It has a length of 310 miles and was named after the greenish-blue mineral, verdigris.

The Keystone Dam and Reservoir, built in 1964, is the largest reservoir on the river and provides flood control, hydroelectric power, and recreation opportunities for fishing and boating. The Oologah Dam and Reservoir, built in 1974, also provides flood control, hydroelectric power, and recreation opportunities. The river is used for agricultural irrigation and supports the local economy. Recreational activities such as camping, hiking, and wildlife watching are popular along the river.
