Deal on Dams
Tulsa locks in commitments for two dam projects if Vision 2’s quality of life portion passes in November.
One is Zink Dam, at a cost of $41-million. The other is a south Tulsa dam. The City of Tulsa has pledged half of the funding for that project. Its price tag would be $30-million.
City Council Chair G.T. Bynum tells KWGS, the City of Jenks and the Creek Nation have agreed to partner with Tulsa for the other half of the south low water dam expense.
Tulsa would receive $158-million, total, in the quality of life funding from Vision 2. $71-million would be earmarked for the two low water dam projects
