Welcome to the Virginia Water Center

The Water Center offers resources and support to researchers, educators, and decision makers throughout the state of Virginia. We do this by facilitating collaborative research, extension, and education programs to develop solutions to water resource challenges. We work across Virginia's academic institutions and with federal, state, regional, nonprofit, and campus communities. Learn more about us.

Water Center Office Update: Although our office will be closed to the public until further notice, we continue to work and engage as much as possible. You can reach us via email - see our "Contact Us" page or our Faculty and Staff page for details. Stay safe and healthy!
