Welcome to the Citizens for the Protection of the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer

CPASA grew out of a grassroots effort in 2002 when local citizens acted in response to man-made threats to the Arbuckle Simpson aquifer and the springs and streams which flow from it. CPASA supports sustainable use, not a “use it all up” policy, the oil/gas model used for Oklahoma’s groundwater law.

Our membership has spread throughout Oklahoma and other states as people have learned about our efforts.

We’re happy that you are exploring our site to learn more about the Arbuckle Simpson aquifer and how it makes this part of Oklahoma unique. On our pages, we go beyond informing you only about CPASA. We also include information on the science of hydrology, Oklahoma’s water laws, current news and events and what you can do to help protect the earth’s water resources, especially our little piece of the earth in south-central Oklahoma.
