Announcing the UA Hydrology & Water Resources 50th Reunion Event

Save the Date: March 31 – April 2, 2016

The Department of Hydrology & Water Resources was founded some 50 years ago. In celebration of this anniversary — and in looking forward to the next 50 years — we are planning a reunion. The event will feature formal and informal opportunities to see what current faculty and students are up to, to find out what your fellow alumni have been doing for all these years, and to hear what leaders in hydrologic science think about where hydrology is headed.

For more information, visit the 50th Reunion web site. We will also post periodic updates here on the AHS web site. Those who are unable to physically attend will have access to a virtual bulletin board where people can share stories about their time at Arizona and since.
