Biographical / Historical

From UA Catalog: The Arkansas Water Resources Center, a unit of the Division of Agriculture, was established by Public Law in 1964. The Center utilizes scientific personnel and facilities of all campuses of the University of Arkansas System (and other Arkansas colleges and universities) in maintaining a water resources research program. The center supports specific research projects throughout Arkansas, which often provide research training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, and it disseminates information on water resources via publications and conferences. The center works closely with federal, state, municipal, educational, and other public groups concerned with water resources in development of its research, training, and dissemination programs.
