CSU receives $12 million for water sustainability

Colorado State leads a consortium of 14 academic institutions and key partners across the nation that is addressing the challenges that threaten urban water systems in the United States and around the world.

With support from a $12 million award from the National Science Foundation, the Urban Water Innovation Network (UWIN) is being established at CSU. The mission of UWIN is to create technological, institutional, and management solutions to help communities increase the resilience of their water systems and enhance preparedness for responding to water crises.

UWIN builds on long-standing programs at CSU for research and training, and trusted leadership in all facets of water resources.

Mazdak Arabi, associate professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at CSU, serves as the director of UWIN. Other CSU faculty involved with UWIN include professors Sybil Sharvelle, Brian Bledsoe, Neil Grigg, Jorge Ramirez, Dan Baker, and Scott Denning from the CSU College of Engineering, and LeRoy Poff with the Department of Biology.
