WRRC Brown Bag -Binational Studies of the Transboundary San Pedro and Santa Cruz Aquifers: Results and Future Directions
February 21, 2018

Time/Location:  12:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. / WRRC Sol Resnick Conference Room (350 N. Campbell Ave.) Tucson

The Santa Cruz and San Pedro aquifers are important sources of water for the Arizona-Sonora border region. Even though groundwater from these aquifers is an essential resource for social, economic, and environmental needs in both countries, assessments of these aquifers have not been conducted by a binational team until recently. At the Brown Bag, researchers will share information from the binational studies of the Transboundary San Pedro and Santa Cruz aquifers. The studies were conducted in partnership with the USGS, the University of Sonora, and others. The presentation will involve WRRC Staff and members of the USGS-UA team involved with studying the Arizona-Sonora aquifers and will also discuss future directions for studying these aquifers.
