USGS 104b Program
The Arkansas Water Resources Center funded nine projects selected through external peer review by the Technical Advisory Committee in 2015. This year, we funded 3 faculty proposals and 6 student proposals with a faculty adviser.
The Center works with students and organizations to conduct scientific research and water quality monitoring around the region.
Northwest Arkansas Water Monitoring
The goal of this project is to collect and analyze 46 water samples on average at 19 sites annually in the Upper Illinois River Watershed and Upper White River Basin, northwest Arkansas and to estimate annual constituent loads and water quality trends.
