Flooding backlogged Ark. River maintenance projects, OK senator says

TULSA, Okla. – U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe says an Arkansas River system that runs from Tulsa to the Mississippi River is facing a $225 million backlog of maintenance projects after being hindered for months this summer by historic flooding in Oklahoma.

The Tulsa World reports Inhofe submitted a statement Wednesday for the committee to discuss the next Water Resources and Development Act law.

Inhofe says the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System moves 10.9 million tons of commerce worth $3.5 billion yearly.
