Dust control at mining sites is an important endeavor for the UA Center for Environmentally Sustainable Mining (CESM).  Researchers supported by WSP use vegetation to keep dust and other pollutants from traveling from mines to surrounding areas.

The WSP Distinguished Speaker Series brings water experts from around the globe to the University of Arizona to present on water issues, research, and initiatives.

The Water Sustainability Program provides fellowships to outstanding graduate and undergraduate students studying subjects ranging from wasterwater remediation to flood forecasting.

The Water and Energy Sustainable Technology Center (WEST) is a state-of-the-art facility for water research focusing on water quality monitoring, water treatment, and alternative energy sources.
