Recurring Activities of the Water Center

Governor's Water Conference & Research Symposium:
Every year since 2003 the Center has hosted a Water Research Symposium to bring together students and researchers in the water field to share their knowledge. In 2007 the Center began holding its meetings in conjunction with the Governor's Water Conference hosted by the Oklahoma Water Resources Board each fall. This partnership has been beneficial to the OWRB, the Water Center, and meeting participants who are able to interact with a more diverse audience. Join our mailing list to get symposium notifications.

Water Research Advisory Board meetings:
WRAB members meet at least twice each year: winter and summer. The focus of the winter meeting is to determine which research projects the Water Center will fund during the year and to set the funding priorities for the next project year. The summer meeting is held to hear the technical reports from the projects funded during the previous year and to select pre-proposals to continue to the final proposal stage.

The next meeting is scheduled for December 13th. The meetings are open to the public. If you would like to attend, please e-mail
