As Utah State University celebrates its 2015 Year of Water, USU Extension water outreach efforts continue to meet the needs of citizens in every corner of the state. Home to internationally recognized experts on water issues, USU is solving water challenges ranging from agricultural water management to ecosystem services to urban water use efficiency and conservation. Further, as the western United States continues to suffer through unprecedented drought conditions, USU's state-of-the-art research and programming efforts are being recognized for their effectiveness and success in meeting the needs of very diverse groups of water users and stake holders. An uncertain water future requires a thorough understanding of this precious resource, and USU Extension continues to meet the challenge by leading the way toward a sustainable water future.
