Water and the many issues and concerns that surround it continue to swirl in political, agricultural and economic circles. When drought conditions hit, the value of water becomes even more urgently evident.

The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and UGA Extension look at the many prisms of water in all teaching, research and Extension programs. Extension agents educate farmers, homeowners, 4-H'ers, community leaders and businesses through workshops, activities and projects.
