The Santa Cruz and San Pedro aquifers are important sources of water for the Arizona-Sonora border region. Even though groundwater from these aquifers is an essential resource for social, economic, and environmental needs in both countries, assessments of these aquifers had not been conducted by a binational team until more recently. We invite you to attend this brown bag presentation, where we will share information from the binational studies of the Transboundary San Pedro and Santa Cruz aquifers.
The Southwest is under consideration for production of fuel from plants and algae due to the long days and ample sunlight. However, water is an issue for sustainable production. This presentation will focus on the potential for using algae and sweet sorghum as feedstocks for biofuels in the Southwest. Strategies for reducing water usage, recycling water and using wastewater for cultivation will be highlighted.

Brown Bag Seminar - How myths and misinformation stand in the way of solving our water problems
With another dry year setting in across the West, the challenges of meeting the water supply needs of a growing population while maintaining our rural communities and a healthy environment are again being thrown in sharp relief. The continuing decline of Lake Mead has become a symbol of deepening problems, but there are also less-noticed examples of success – in conserving water and sharing in times of scarcity – which we need to understand in order to craft solutions.
