Water Research

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

The CoWC  brings together interdisciplinary research to address complex and evolving water-related challenges in Colorado and beyond. We do so by supporting with funding and building collaborative networks between higher education and water stakeholders.
