The Water Quality Center brings together researchers, government, private foundations, industry and others to solve problems related to lake, river and groundwater quality. These problems often involve municipal wastewater, industrial wastewater, stormwater runoff and drinking water. Research is often multidisciplinary and is performed by experts from engineering, biological sciences, mathematics, statistics and computer science, and other disciplines.
The center maintains a 3,700-square-foot laboratory facility that includes instrumentation (gas chromatographs, high-pressure liquid chromatographs, ICP-MS, total organic carbon analyzers, etc.) and space for testing and research.
