Engage in exciting water discussions at the Water Resources Research Center’s 2020 annual conference, Water at the Crossroads: The Next 40 Years.
Over the past 20 years, the Tucson Active Management Area has experienced fluctuations in aquifer storage. These changes are a result of recharging imported water and changing groundwater pumping regimes. The USGS uses microgravity to directly measure storage changes in space and time, while Tucson Water measures depth to water in its measurable production wells in an annual round-up. By examining the data from both agencies, it is possible to characterize changes in the regional aquifer and monitor interesting trends in specific geographic areas.
This second webinar in the “Get Ready” series will focus on committees under the Governor’s Water Augmentation, Innovation, and Conservation Council. Philip Richards, Chair of the Desalination Committee, will discuss why desalination is being used as a possible solution for Arizona’s current water challenges and how it can help meet future water needs. In addition, committee Chair Wade Noble and Co-Chair Timothy Thomure will provide updates from the Long-Term Water Augmentation and Post-2025 AMAs Committees.

The WRRC is pleased to call your attention to three new books written by friends and colleagues about water and related issues. Marie Pearthree, Deputy General Manager at the Central Arizona Water Conservation District, has written a book with the writer Michael McGuire chronicling how Tucson Water lost credibility and public trust, when in 1992 the utility introduced treated Central Arizona Project (CAP) water into its water delivery system; and how it subsequently rebuilt its reputation.
