    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma Water Resources Board is planning in-depth studies to prevent water supply shortages in western Oklahoma. Planning specialists will study three of the state's twelve "Hot Spot" basins identified in a 2012 water plan as expected to have the most water supply challenges within the next 50 years. The basins include part of the Beaver-Cache Watershed Planning Region near Duncan, part of the Southwest Watershed Planning Region near Altus and part of the Central Watershed Planning Region located between Yukon and Watonga. The studies will focus on how water conservation, marginal quality water supplies and public water supply system regionalization might address the needs of basins on a local level and serve as examples for water users statewide. The studies are part of the state's ongoing water conservation initiative.
