The final product is this Story Map Series website, a synthesis of published science and technical knowledge of the Skagit hydrologic system. Virtually all maps and graphics on the website are interactive to provide multiple perspectives on data. Check it out!
The Water Resources Club at Washington State University is a community of students and advisers committed to engagement with local and regional water issues. We cherish and celebrate clean and bountiful water for humans and wildlife, alike.
We are from many backgrounds: engineering, environmental science, art, cultural and spiritual wisdom, policy, and economics. Join our club to add your voice today.
We at the Water Resources Club are passionate about engaging in education and projects that improve the quality and abundance of water for all living things. We are interested in many facets of water issues: from the science and engineering of watersheds and water systems, to management and policy of water resources, to the regional cultural and spiritual aspects of water. Contact us to suggest a project for our involvement or issues around which we can help spread awareness, or join our club to add your skills and vision.
The WRC is partnering with the American University in Cairo, five Egyptian universities, four other U.S.-based universities, and industry partners to create the Alexandria Water Resilience Center of Excellence (AWR-COE). » More …
A new 5 million dollar, five-year project led by the WRC and funded by the USDA Agriculture and Food Research Initiative’s Water for Food Production Systems Challenge Area will be working to identify promising emerging technologies and synergistic policies to improve technical and allocative water use efficiency in irrigated agriculture.
The research team, which includes scientists at the University of Idaho, University of Washington, Kansas State University, University of Utah, Mammoth Trading, Aspect Consulting, and a diverse group of water users and stakeholders in the Columbia River Basin.
The project will focus on how seasonal water availability forecasting, satellite-based consumptive use monitoring, and computer-based smart market technology can be used in conjunction with changes in water use and water transfer rules to improve water use. “This exciting project will help find ways to improve water use efficiency in agriculture, by focusing on how technology, water rights and regulation work together to make the most of available water for all of its social and environmental values,” said Jonathan Yoder, Lead Investigator and Director of the WRC.
