NAU-SRP Cooperative Agreement

In 2017 Northern Arizona University (NAU) and the Salt River Project (SRP) established an annual cooperative research agreement for the mutual advancement of applied research topics of public benefit to the State of Arizona and to the operations of SRP. This program engages NAU faculty experts and trains students in this research.

Topics vary by year, but generally include water and energy sustainability, watershed and forest restoration, economics, water quality and quantity, power systems, and renewable water and energy technologies.

Contact the NAU Office of the Vice President for Research or the lead investigators (Drs. Ciocanel and Ruddell) for more information.
