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.
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.

The University of Arizona’s Water Resources Research Center is offering a summer internship to a student interested in gaining experience writing about environmental and water issues. The selected intern will contribute to research and writing for an issue of Arroyo, the annual WRRC publication that focuses on a critical Arizona water issue. Arroyo is recognized as source of objective, accurate and understandable information and reaches a wide audience that includes policy makers and water professionals as well as the interested public.
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.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Water Resources Research Center Photo Contest. This year we gave photographers only two criteria - that photos be water-related and that they be taken in Arizona.
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.
