The Tulsa West Tulsa Levee System consists of three sections that are approximately 20 miles in combined length. The structure was constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in the 1940s. After construction was completed the local sponsor took over levee operation and maintenance in accordance with flood control legislation of the day.
