The WRRC is calling for research proposals from students for its 104b grants program. The program, authorized under the Water Resources Research Act, Section 104(b) and funded through the U.S. Geological Survey, promotes the entry of new research scientists, engineers and technicians in the water resources field and education of students through significant involvement in water research.
On September 6th, more than 50 people gathered in Miami, Arizona to lend voice to the Cobre Valley Small Town Forum on Water, a meeting to facilitate discussion about water resources management among elected officials, utility and planning staff, natural resource experts, and other interested water users.
As groundwater reliance is increasing across the globe, including the United States-Mexico region
The WRRC Annual Report highlights our efforts during 2017, including groundbreaking research on groundwater governance, antibiotic resistance in water, and stakeholder engagement practices; programs that foster sustainable water planning in Arizona’s rural communities, effective educational strategies; respected outreach to multiple audiences, and nurturing of future water resources professionals.
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.
