The mission of the Water Resources Center is to stimulate and support water and water-related research both within and among the various academic departments and research organizations of the University. The broad research focus includes the conservation, development, management, distribution, and utilization of water resources with a view to their optimum present and future use for the state of California.

Five research projects from various campuses within the University system will share in the grant. They are: William Yeh "Modeling and Optimization of Water Quality in a Large-Scale Regional Water Supply System", Thomas Meixner "Landscape Level Controls on Nitrate-Nitrogen in Forested and Chaparral Catchments of Southern California, Mark Stacey, "Hydrodynamics of Shallow Water Habitats in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Sunny Jiang "Is Urban Runoff A Source of Human Pathogenic Viruses to Recreational Beach Water?", and Nina Kelly "Examining the Relative Influence of Riparian and Upland Land cover and Land use on Instream Habitat: Improved Methods for the Russian River Basin."
