Federal Agency Renews Support for Arkansas Water Resources Center
Recently the Arkansas Water Resources Center (AWRC) passed its three-year evaluation and will be able to continue receiving federal funding. As a unit of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture, the AWRC is one of only 54 water resource research centers across the United States of America. AWRC uses their funding to train new scientists, disseminate research results to water managers and the public, and cooperate with other institutions in their regions on water issues. Federal funded projects at AWRC include irrigation and runoff, innovative domestic wastewater disposal systems, groundwater modeling, land-use mapping, erosion and pollution, water quality, as well as ecosystems.
