Catch up on water-related research from universities around Texas:
- Daylong wastewater samples yield surprises: new research by Rice University scientists compared simple, “snapshot” samples of wastewater to daylong composite samples and found that snapshot samples were more likely to result in bias in testing for the presence of antibiotic-resistant genes.
- Woody thickets preventing water recharge in Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer: Texas A&M AgriLife Research scientists found that the expansion of woody plants across Texas’ Post Oak Savannah is significantly reducing water recharge in the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer.
- Evaluation of citrus grove floor management strategies for water use efficiency and conservation: Texas A&M University – Kingsville scientists evaluated water savings and tree growth while using four different grove floor management and irrigation strategies.
