Funding Available for Water Research and Outreach
The U.S. Department of Agriculture through the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) is soliciting proposals for their “Water for Food Production Systems Challenge Area”.
The goal of the AFRI program is to sustainably increase agricultural productivity while reducing the amount of water used, and preserving water quality.

The Arkansas Water Resources Center publishes a variety of publications including the annual report for the US Geological Survey 104B Program, newsletters, annual summaries of AWRC activities, MSC and PUB Publications, and water-data reports.
USGS 104B Grants
The AWRC awards multiple water research grants each year through the USGS 104B Grant Program.
The purpose of this project is to collect and analyze 46 samples each year at 15 sites in the Upper Illinois River Watershed and Upper White River Basin. The goal is to estimate loads and trends for a number of important water quality parameters.
Tracking Turbidity in the West Fork
The purpose of this study is to better understand how water quality changes from the upstream headwaters of the West Fork of the White River to the larger downstream sections of the river.
