We had such a great response to last year’s open-ended approach to our photo contest that we’re doin’ it again this year. Just show us Arizona water. Yup, that's as specific as we're going to get. Use your creativity and technical ability to express the many ways water transforms our state and the many ways our state transforms water. Capture anything from people and nature to business and agriculture. It’s completely up to you. Just make sure your picture relates to water and it’s in Arizona!

It’s that time of year. In honor of Earth Week, students are showcasing their work in oral presentations and posters at events organized by their academic departments. This week the Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Science held its annual El Día del Agua y Atmósfera on Monday and the Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science held “SWESx” on Wednesday and Thursday. Several students with connections to the WRRC participated in both events.
The Water Resources Research Center's 2018 annual conference, The Business of Water, held on Wednesday, March 28, attracted over 300 people from around the state and beyond. Topics such as public-private partnerships, water transactions, collaborations among businesses, philanthropic foundations and NGOs, and the linkages between environmental water and economic development were examined through the course of the day.
