The IWW participates in several e-mail distribution lists for the water-related community at OSU and for water professionals in the state of Oregon. Below is a description of these lists and instructions on how to join.

The OSU Hydro Email Lists

These lists receive postings of H2OSU, a newsletter highlighting Oregon water related stories and upcoming events. The lists are moderated by the IWW. Note that the OSU Water Resources Graduate Program operates listservs with posts specifically for water resources students and faculty at OSU.

Subscribe to the list that best applies to you:

hydro_faculty - includes all faculty and staff (including adjunct/courtesy faculty).  Receives H2OSU plus occasional other posts relevant to OSU faculty and staff.

hydro_students - includes both undergraduate and graduate students. Receives H2OSU plus occasional other posts relevant for students.

hydro_alumni - OSU hydro alumni who wish to stay in the loop about OSU water happenings.  This list receives the H2OSU, but few other postings.

hydro_news - individuals not affiliated with OSU but interested in receiving the monthly H2OSU post.

Please note that during Summer months (July, August, September) H2OSU will be on hiatus.
