Biographical Sketch

Established in 1965 by the Board of Regents, the Water Resources Center (WRC) researches water issues on the state, national and international level, and in particular water concerns of the Texas High Plains. The WRC is housed in the Civil Engineering building and its researchers are comprised of Civil and Environmental Engineering faculty.

"The operating philosophy of the WRC is that the highest priority for research activities should be accorded to concerns inherent in ensuring the High Plains region has water supplies that are adequate in quantity and quality to meet the region's needs. Thus, three objectives have been identifies: 1)Augmentation- increasing the supply of available water; 2) Conservation- reducing demands by increasing the efficiency of water use; and 3) Protection- preventing the pollution of existing supplies. Education and the WRC go hand-in-hand."
