Center for Water Quality Research

The Center for Water Quality Research serves as a national integrating resource for water and environmentally-focused transdisciplinary research and development activities. The center pursues the innovative application of science and engineering principles to collect and transform environmental and water resource information into actionable knowledge that protects public health and promotes environmental stewardship and resilience.

With a core capacity in environmental and hydrologic informatics, key research themes include climate and climate change impacts; environmental and water resource management decision support; fate and transport of contaminants in the environment; global water, sanitation and hygiene; hydrologic and frequency modeling; stormwater and emerging contaminants; and water and wastewater treatment.
