A Corrosion Crisis Story Featured in WRRC Brown Bag
On Wednesday, April 29, the WRRC hosted Marie Pearthree for a Brown Bag Webinar to discuss her new book, Tucson Water Turnaround: Crisis to Success. The presentation provided an overview of Tucson Water's conversion from delivering groundwater to Colorado River water provided by the Central Arizona Project, which led to widespread corrosion issues in the early 1990s. Pearthree's excellent presentation revealed the extensive research she and her co-author Mike McGuire conducted in writing their book, which paints a picture of how Tucson Water managed the organizational, chemical, and infrastructure challenges it faced. The webinar concluded with lessons learned from a true turnaround story. For the full story, rich with context, Tucson Water Turnaround: Crisis to Success is available from the American Water Works Association.

Saving Groundwater at Schools
Gasps of excitement and broad smiles are common when students explore the groundwater system using APW’s 3D student models. APW is very excited and eager to expand this success through a multiyear grant from Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR), which provides funding to educate West Valley students on Arizona’s groundwater conditions.

Re-Imagining the Possibilities – AGU2020
Since 2017, Betsy Wilkening of APW has attended the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting to present the achievements of the Recharge the Rain (RtR) project, a NOAA-sponsored Environmental Literacy Program in partnership with Watershed Management Group. It is only appropriate, at the close of this very odd year, that APW’s presentation is about Re-Imagining the Possibilities. All of us are starting to realize that these possibilities translate into new opportunities for education, communication, and connection.
