water resources research


Since the beginning of the Arkansas Water Resources Center the overall program has been focused on helping local, state and federal agencies learn to manage Arkansas' water resources. AWRC has contributed substantially to the State's water resources via research and training of students. Through the years, projects have included topics concerned with irrigation, ground water modeling, non-point source pollution (including sediment erosion), water quality, efficient septic tank design, and ecosystems. Information on water research and other water-resource information is disseminated by the Center through public presentations, conferences, and publications. Since 1980, an average of more than 15 principal investigators a year have participated in AWRC projects. In addition, approximately eight undergraduate students and 15 graduate students have gained valuable training and experience through AWRC projects each year. Many of these students have participated in environmentally related work across the State. An advisory committee, composed of representatives from state and federal agencies, industry and academia, provides guidance for the Center. AWRC helps insure pure, adequate water for Arkansas today and tomorrow.
