OSU Water in the News

Congratulations to OSU graduate student Sarah Sheldrick!  Her documentary film: Water Before Anything; Conflict Transformation in Umatilla County; was recently posted on TheWaterChannel, where it has received nearly 1,000 views.  The film explores the Umatilla River watershed of northeast Oregon’s water crisis and the resulting, hard-won community-based solution.  There will be a showing of the film at the 50th anniversary of Water Research at OSU on September 30th.  All are welcome to attend.
