Ten Water Challenges Facing Wisconsin
Water challenges can be broadly categorized into challenges to supply, challenges of pollution, managing use or demand, and infrastructure challenges. However, depending on context, tackling these challenges requires a wide variety of solutions. The Freshwater Collaborative of Wisconsin provides UW System-wide programs, internships and research opportunities that teach students real-world skills that will create a workforce of talented water professionals trained to meet the water challenges of the future. We are currently funding innovative, collaborative research that engages industry partners, local communities, policymakers and advocacy groups in the effort to support career opportunities in freshwater.
