“In previous years, our lake guide has been sort of a handy reference containing boating safety information, lake maps, information on GRDA Police and other contact information,” said GRDA Corporate Communications Director Justin Alberty. “The new version still contains all that, but we also wanted to provide more in-depth content.”

According to Alberty the new lake guide includes several articles about GRDA’s lake-related operations, the GRDA Ecosystems Water Quality Lab, the economic impact of fishing tournaments on Grand and Hudson lakes and more. It also includes information on the “big picture” of GRDA in Oklahoma.

“Basically we combined the summer issue of our Currents news magazine with the lake guide,” said Alberty, “and we feel like the result is a publication that lake area stakeholders will find helpful and interesting.”

The publication can be viewed online at under the “Lake Management” drop-down menu. Hardcopies are also available at the GRDA Ecosystems and Education Center in Langley, GRDA Administration in Vinita, and at other areas around Grand and Hudson lakes. For more information, contact GRDA at (918) 256 5545.

Headquartered in Vinita, GRDA is Oklahoma’s state-owned electric utility; fully funded by revenues from electric and water sales instead of taxes. Directly or indirectly, GRDA’s low-cost, reliable electricity serves nearly 500,000 homes in Oklahoma and stretches into 75 of 77 counties in the state. At no cost to Oklahoma taxpayers, GRDA also manages 70,000 surface acres of lakes in the state, including Grand Lake, Lake Hudson and the W.R. Holway Reservoir. Today, GRDA’s 500 employees continue to produce the same “power for progress” that has benefited the state for 75 years.
