Integrative water research for a changing world.

The Institute for Water and Watersheds (IWW) is Oregon’s federally-designated water resources research institute. Its role is to catalyze water research by:

  • Assembling diverse research teams and leading interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary water research projects.

  • Helping policy makers and water managers collaborate with university faculty as they seek solutions to complex water issues.

  • Offering training and access to water quality and stable isotope analysis facilities through a shared laboratory called the IWW Collaboratory.

  • Encouraging community and collaboration among water faculty, students and water managers by sponsoring events and producing a weekly campus water newsletter.
