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.

Mandla Kunnie has created a digital database of the locations of all rainwater harvesting infrastructure in the Tucson area. Such a database can help water managers plan for population growth and the associated increased demand on water resources.
World Water Day is a good day for reflection. Just a few days ago, on March 19, 2019, representatives of the seven states of the Colorado River Basin gathered in Phoenix, Arizona to sign a letter asking Congress to approve implementation of the drought contingency plans detailed in the documents attached to the letter.
Water management is among the most pressing issues in Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2018 Water Resources Research Center Photo Contest. This year we again gave photographers two criteria - that photos be water related and that they be taken in Arizona. And we received many wonderful submissions. People, nature, Arizona and other topics were showcased by the many photographers who submitted their images.
This February, the WRRC annual conference, "Arizona Runs on Water: Scarcity, Challenges, and Community-based Solutions", will be held in our state's capital and will feature case-studies about water from across Arizona.
