TWRI researcher recognized at national conference

Dr. Rosario Sanchez, Texas Water Resources Institute’s research scientist, received a Recognition Award from the Mexican Association of Hydrogeologists during the XI National Congress of Groundwater in Puebla, Mexico.

“I was invited to present for the first time on October 11, 2017 about my current research, transboundary aquifers between Texas and Mexico,” Sanchez said. “Not many people are working on this topic so it is unique information.”

After presenting her research at the National Congress, Sanchez was presented with the award for her work.

“This was a very important meeting of academic and international government representatives to present current challenges on groundwater and propose future planning,” she said.

Her peer-review journal article is currently under review and is expected to be published in the special edition of transboundary aquifers in the Journal of Hydrology in early 2018.


As communications specialist for TWRI, Sarah Richardson works with the institute's communications team leading graphic design projects including Conservation Matters, flyers, brochures, reports, documents and other educational materials.
