7 Oklahoma dams to be repaired using stimulus money

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The state will use federal stimulus money to help repair seven high-hazard dams in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma Conservation Commission says Oklahoma will get about $14 million to repair the dams and the state will provide a 35 percent match.

High-hazard dams are those that - if they break - would kill people.

Three of the dams to be repaired are in Pontotoc County, two are in Caddo County and one each is in Adair and Kingfisher counties.

The federal government awarded the money under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that's intended to improve infrastructure and stimulate the economy.
