Abstract: An effective information dissemination program continues to be an essential element for transferring research and timely information to a wide audience. Information on water related fields is being generated at such a rapid rate that those interested in the issues often are not aware of its existence so its application is not as extensive as it could be. To address this information transfer gap in the water related fields, the Institute of Water Research has developed and expanded upon its information dissemination and training program.

The objectives are to develop and present educational programs designed to increase the public's awareness and appreciation of the water quality and quantity problems in Michigan and to stress the economic tradeýÓoffs required to solve water related problems. These programs are offered in the form of conferences, seminars, training workshops, computer models, web-based programs, and printed material.
