Water Resources

There is a reason UArizona is No. 1 in water resources: we take water seriously. At Arizona Environment, we examine the critical intersections between groundwater and surface water, climate change and water supply, wildfire and water quality, conservation and quality of life, emerging contaminants and wastewater reuse.

With over 280 faculty members in 48 departments working collaboratively on water science and policy, we innovate on water-related solutions at multiple scales. Every year, the UArizona advances new management approaches, technologies, tools and data to build resilience, water security and water safety for the future. The University of Arizona Water Network is organized into five themes – drought and climate, environmental systems, management and policy, society and culture, and technology and industry. As new water challenges come, Arizona Environment stands ready to provide real-world experience and cutting-edge research to help build solutions in the context of new technologies, interconnected watersheds and multiple sources of scientific and technical uncertainty.
