Abstract: The Delaware Water Resources Center (DWRC) research, education, and information transfer programs focus on issues of state and regional importance to both water quality and water quantity. The long-term priority areas of the DWRC are programs and projects that address: (i) nonpoint source pollution of ground and surface waters, (ii) water supply and demand, and (iii) preservation and protection of aquatic ecosystems. The objective of the DWRC at this land grant institution of the University of Delaware is to fund and stimulate interdisciplinary water resources research, education, and information transfer by faculty and students throughout the university in the colleges of Agriculture and Natural Resources; Engineering; Earth, Oceans, and Environment; and Arts and Sciences.
