The Santa Cruz and San Pedro aquifers are important sources of water for the Arizona-Sonora border region. Even though groundwater from these aquifers is an essential resource for social, economic, and environmental needs in both countries, assessments of these aquifers had not been conducted by a binational team until more recently. We invite you to attend this brown bag presentation, where we will share information from the binational studies of the Transboundary San Pedro and Santa Cruz aquifers.
WRRC Brown Bag - Yuma Agriculture and the Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture
Paul E. Brierley, Executive Director, Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture
Yuma agriculture is in the top 0.5% of U.S. Counties in agricultural crop production, producing nearly 90% of North America’s winter leafy greens, but it is always striving to overcome challenges and be even more productive.What makes it such a top producer? And how does the Yuma Center of Excellence for Desert Agriculture (YCEDA) support this amazing industry?
YCEDA is a public-private partnership between the Ag industry and the University of Arizona’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Guided by industry stakeholders, YCEDA brings together researchers and funding for projects ranging from irrigation and salinity management to disease mitigation, and from wildlife deterrence to drones and remote sensing.
Brown Bag Seminar - Binational Studies of the Transboundary San Pedro and Santa Cruz Aquifers: Results and Future Directions
Brown Bag Seminar - How myths and misinformation stand in the way of solving our water problems
With another dry year setting in across the West, the challenges of meeting the water supply needs of a growing population while maintaining our rural communities and a healthy environment are again being thrown in sharp relief. The continuing decline of Lake Mead has become a symbol of deepening problems, but there are also less-noticed examples of success – in conserving water and sharing in times of scarcity – which we need to understand in order to craft solutions.
Brown Bag Seminar - Salt River Project and HydroLogics
HydroLogics uses water resources modeling tools to facilitate planning, operations, and conflict resolution on the scale of single-reservoir systems all the way up to large multi-state river basins. The conjunctive management of surface and groundwater resources at SRP has historically created a very reliable and sustainable supply of water for SRP's shareholders and customers.
WRRC Conference 2018 - The Business of Water
Water is everyone’s business and the business of water affects everyone. On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, The Business of Water will be front and center at the University of Arizona (UA) Water Resources Research Center’s Annual Conference, which will be held at the University of Arizona Student Union in Tucson, Arizona.
