"The City of Pawhuska is thankful for the assistance OWRB has provided to help alleviate the problems associated with the failing dam at Pawhuska Lake.  An inspection of the dam in 2019 indicated several problems which needed to be addressed to maintain the dam and prevent possible dam failure. OWRB met with the City to discuss the problems with the dam and to discuss possible funding options the City was not aware of.  Without the assistance of OWRB and their staff, solving the issues with the dam would have been difficult. An emergency grant and principal forgiveness loan from OWRB will provide the assistance we need to upgrade the dam and make it safer for the public and city personnel who maintain the dam."
