Members of the Water Sustainability Initiative in the University of Iowa’s Old Capitol.

We are the members of the University of Iowa’s Water Sustainability Initiative, working together as an interdisciplinary team with the hopes to develop sound strategies and technological solutions to meet the challenges facing society’s growing need for sustainable water resources and educate future generations of sustainable water citizens. The initiative began as a faculty cluster hire in 2009, and our members come from many diverse professional backgrounds to work to meet our water sustainability goals.
