OSU Water in the News

You can watch all the speeches from the UN International Water Forum held on September 16, 2011, including a speech by OSU’s own Dr. Michael Campana.

Julie Watson's film- A River Loved- is now available online.  Julie's film, which was designed to facilitate dialogue about the Columbia River Treaty, debuted at the 2011 Columbia River Symposium in Kimberley, BC.  Julie created this film as part of her Master's project in the WRPM program.
