Water resources impact all aspects of our lives e.g., economic development, industrial prosperity, human health, and environment protection. Texas water resources (groundwater, surface water, and coastal water) are under severe stresses as a result of unprecedented population growth, high urbanization, development of new energy sources energy with high water demands, severe droughts and uncertainty mainly due to climate variability. Given these tremendous challenges facing our region, the College of Agriculture and Human Sciences at PVAMU, as a land grant institution, initiated a strong natural resources and environmental science (NRES) program. This tripartite program (teaching, research and extension) will produce two degree programs in NRES (BS and MS degree programs). CAHS has also initiated an IWSP which is support with a team composed of Hydrologists with different but complementing expertizes in water resources and environmental science. One of the main goals of CAHS-IWSP is to promote sound water management practices and provide a solid foundation on which to build sustainable water resources management with conflicting land usages (urban, agriculture, industrial, and conservation). Flood prediction and mitigation, site-specific water management practices, Water conservation and allocation, future Water demands, interaction between surface and groundwater resources, and coastal water issues; these are some of the most pressing water and natural resource issues facing East-Texas (Houston Greater Area), the state of Texas, and the Southeast including the Gulf of Mexico. CAHS-IWSP will be focusing on understanding, studying, and finding solutions for most of these issues.
