The Vermont Water Center, administered by the University of Vermont Rubenstein School, funds research on major water resource issues of concern to the state, disseminates results from that research, and helps to educate students about the nature and value of water resources.
Recent research efforts have focused on Lake Champlain, alternative methods of wastewater treatment, and groundwater quality.
