WRRC 2019 Annual Conference Participation Opportunity
On February 1, 2019, the UA Water Resources Research Center will hold its Annual Conference, Arizona Runs on Water: Scarcity, Challenges, and Community-based Solutions, at the Black Canyon Conference Center, located at 9440 N. 25th Ave., in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference will explore how Arizona’s various regions, cities, towns, tribes, and rural areas are working to meet their water and the solutions they are identifying, assessing, and/or implementing.
In order to learn more about efforts undertaken across Arizona, we are soliciting additional case studies that describe a place-based water challenge/solution. You will find a form here that asks about the nature of the challenge, the solution, and the barriers or opportunities that hinder or help. Please take a few minutes to fill in the online form. We will include your responses in a compendium of case studies as a follow-up to the conference. You will also be asked to indicate your interest in presenting your case study during the luncheon program in a 3-minute “lightning talk”. Talks will be selected from the case studies submitted via the online form. Authors of selected talks will be contacted three weeks before the conference. More information about the luncheon session will be sent at that time.
Lunch speakers must be registered for the conference.

Managed aquifer recharge (MAR) is the intentional recharge (and storage) of water into an aquifer for future recovery or for environmental benefits. Mary Belle Cruz Ayala, a Ph.D. Student in Arid Lands Resource Sciences and a Graduate Research Assistant at the WRRC, recently presented her research on this topic at the 10th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge (ISMAR10) in Madrid, Spain. Her presentation, "Use of Managed Aquifer Recharge to Improve Water Management in Arid and Semi-Arid Regions of Mexico," presented results from the first paper from her Ph.D.
