Weekly Wave, vol. 11, no. 8, Water Resources Research Center, Tucson, AZ, February 24, 2023
Graduate students in my “Water Policy in Arizona and Semi-arid Regions” class visited the Sweetwater Wetlands on Saturday, February 11, 2023. We were joined there by Professor David Quanrud and students from his “Wildland Water Quality” class. A visit to the wetlands is always a helpful addition to classroom discussions and readings. There we can see how treated wastewater is recharged and reclaimed for reuse and benefits the environment. Open to the public, it is a hidden gem and worth a visit. We visited the Wetlands on a cloudy, somewhat gloomy morning. Clouds often contribute to interesting photos, and the reflections of the clouds in the water led me to write this essay.
