The Nebraska Water Center’s 2017-2018 Annual Report is now available online and in print. The 40-page report covers two years’ worth of NWC research, extension and outreach, and teaching activities.

Among the report's highlights are updates from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Water Sciences Laboratory (WSL), including its vadose zone monitoring and nitrate leaching reduction projects; NWC's collaborative research on the long-term sustainability of the Ogallala Aquifer; extension and engagement programs with the Bazile Groundwater Management Area; and profiles of post-docs behind many of the center's research endeavors. 

"The annual report is an excellent synopsis of our recent activities. I think readers will get a sense of how we work across university departments, with other higher education institutions and with stakeholders across Nebraska - from the heads of state agencies to local FFA chapters - to better understand and manage our water resources," said NWC director Chittaranjan Ray.

Established in 1964 by Congressional mandate, the NWC coordinates research and programs that support the University of Nebraska as an international leader in water research, teaching, extension and outreach. NWC is part of the Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska.
