“Nevada is a unique state due to the robustness of its water law and its arid climate. The professionals with NWRA are at the forefront of their industry. There is so much to be learned no matter where you may end up when you are finished with your degree. Take advantage of the connections and opportunities that NWRA can provide, it is one of the greatest benefits of being at a hydro program in Nevada.”

Brian Anderson, UNR

“NWRA provides students and young professionals with abundant opportunities to grow and create a network of connections. The professional relationships I’ve established are extremely valuable as I begin my career in Nevada water resources."

Lydia Peri, Student Member

“Active attendance at the NWRA annual conference has helped me see the different professions and organizations involved with water resources in Nevada and surrounding states. As a student looking to start a career in this sector, seeing the variety of professions in water resources industry has given me a better picture of what options I have to start with, and where I could go as my career advances. There are not very many opportunities a student has to see a snapshot of the entire spectrum of a potential career field, and thus the conference has provided me a lot of opportunities to evaluate what goals I have as a current/future water professional.”

“I have found many people I have met to be very approachable and very willing to help students.  Also take advantage of as many NWRA opportunities as you can. They are exceptional and these types of chances will not come around as often when you are not a student.”

Brian Anderson, UNR

         


NWRA-UNR STUDENTS AT CASTLE LAKE RESEARCH STATION

In April of 2015 the NWRA-UNR Student Chapter traveled to the Castle Lake Research station, located in Northern California. Castle Lake is the longest running mountain lake research program in North America and directed by UNR's Dr. Sudeep Chandra. NWRA students assisted scientists from Dr. Chandra's lab group with the annual spring sampling campaign, which included fish sampling, run-off sampling, water quality analysis, and research station maintenance. The research and monitoring program at Castle Lake provides a long-term perspective on food web interactions, ecosystem production, fish stocking regimes, and nutrient cycling in sub-alpine lakes. This is the third consecutive year the NWRA student club has traveled to Castle Lake. It's a great opportunity for students to gain experience with field work and learn about a complex watershed basin which ultimately feeds the Lake Shasta reservoir.
