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.
