The Colorado Water Center (CoWC) brings together the work of the Colorado Water Institute and the CSU Water Center. The CoWC serves to lead interdisciplinary research, education, and engagement to address today’s most pressing water issues in Colorado and beyond, and connect diverse water stakeholders to resources and expertise.

The Colorado Water Center is one of 54 Water Resources Research Institutes created by the Water Resources Act of 1964, which collectively form the National Institutes for Water Resources.

The Center is a division under CSU’s Office of Engagement, and supported by CSU Extension, CSU’s Office of the Provost, Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station and the U.S. Geological Survey.
