In 1964, Congress passed the Water Resources Research Act, establishing water research institutions like the Arkansas Water Resources Center (AWRC) at land-grant universities throughout the United States. AWRC, located at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, is part of a network of 54 water institutes. AWRC, in cooperation with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Institute for Water Resources (NIWR), has helped local, state and federal agencies learn to manage Arkansas' water resources for more than 30 years.

The Arkansas Water Resources Center publishes this e-news each month to highlight research, faculty, news and important events.
