General Public Info

If you are interested in discovering facts about the new Zink Dam, to be completed in 2024, click on the image below.

These PowerPoint presentation slides and supporting documents will provide you unpublicized facts about the dam, its promised features and benefits, and especially the false information embelished by the City of Tulsa to sell the project to the voters. Might call it a flimflam job.

Your takeaway from this information is up to you. However, you will come away with a new awareness as to how the City, especially Mayor Bynum has managed or mismanaged this project worth tens of millions of dollars and what to expect upon its completion.

If you are interested is how you can save the old pedestrian bridge. Check out this webpage. This is another waste of Tulsa money and a flimflam job on Tulsans. Tulsans did not get to name the bridge even though we funded most of the construction cost. Williams put a pittance of money in it and they got to name it!
