On February 12, the WRRC hosted Marty Ralph, Director, Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes and Researcher at UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography to discuss Atmospheric River Science. Rivers of water vapor in the sky, which is how Dr. Ralph describes atmospheric rivers, are key to understanding the character of storm fronts and precipitation in the western United States.
WRRC Conference 2018 - The Business of Water
Water is everyone’s business and the business of water affects everyone. On Wednesday, March 28, 2018, The Business of Water will be front and center at the University of Arizona (UA) Water Resources Research Center’s Annual Conference, which will be held at the University of Arizona Student Union in Tucson, Arizona. We will explore the many facets of our topic, focusing on key questions. How will water exchanges, transfers and market-based transactions figure into our water future? What is the role of the private sector, including public-private partnerships? What factors and forces influence what we pay for water? Please plan to join us on March 28 as we consider these complex and dynamic issues vital to the reliability, safety, and cost of our future water supplies.

Throughout the year, the Water Resources Research Center works tirelessly to bring trusted water information to Arizonans and to share Arizona's water story widely.
The U.S. Geological Survey in cooperation with the National Institutes for Water Resources is requesting proposals for the FY 2018 Water Resources Research National Competitive Grants Program (104g). Grants will support research on improving and enhancing the nation's water supply. Any investigator at an accredited institution of higher learning in the United States is eligible to apply. Proposals may be for projects of 1 to 3 years in duration and may request up to $250,000 in federal funds.
Each year, WRRC faculty and staff devote long hours to production of a detailed Annual Report, containing a wealth of information on our yearly accomplishments, finances, and multiple water programs across Arizona. We have now made available a 4-page synopsis of our 2016 Annual Report that can be downloaded here. This report contains metrics on all of our programs that address water issues with greater depth and broader perspective, towards a clear water future for Arizona.
