About us

50th Anniversary...or is it?

The Department of Hydrology and Water Resources is celebrating 50 years—actually more than 50 years—of education and research in hydrology and water resources. The department had its origins in the Department of Geology while Dr. John Harshbarger was department head. Students earned degrees in hydrology and water resources as early as 1962 before the department was a stand-alone entity. The area of specialization within geology became so popular that a new degree program was created, the first of its kind in the nation devoted solely to the science of water. 

So no matter when you walked these hallowed halls, we want you to be part of this celebration!

Note:  All material subject to revision (especially if your memory is better than ours). Contact the department if you have information that will help us update our pages.
