Arizona's physical setting and water law framework present a unique set of technical and policy challenges for water management and planning. The University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center (WRRC) is developing a suite of policy tools and demonstration projects aimed at securing water for Arizona's ecosystems in the context of limited supplies. The WRRC is exploring what it means to consider the environment in Arizona's water planning and what the options are for the environment as a water customer in its own right.
Come learn about the progress the WRRC is making and the variety of strategies being employed - including technical assessments, public education, voluntary actions, and innovative policy mechanisms - to address Arizona's environmental challenges related to water resources.
