Arizona Water Innovation Initiative Introduces Statewide Effort To Address Water Concerns
Arizona government leaders are teaming with ASU and other partners to seek innovative and comprehensive solutions to the state’s water challenges. Enrique Vivoni, a hydro systems engineer and professor in the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, part of the Fulton Schools, will lead the Advanced Water Observatory as part of the wide-ranging effort. Vivoni says the observatory will use some of the most advanced data analytics, information, artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies to help guide the state’s water management decisions in the future. Vivoni expects to see the many facets of the projects opening opportunities for students to get involved in the research.
