Virginia Water Resources Research Center

In 1964, a congressional act established a network of 54 water resource programs to be placed at land-grant universities across the nation. Virginia Tech was selected to house the Commonwealth’s water center in 1965 under the name "Virginia Water Resources Research Center" (“The Water Center”).

Our functions, powers, and duties have also been established by the Code of Virginia and include:

consulting with the General Assembly, federal, state and local agencies, nonprofit organizations, private industry and other potential users of research;
establishing and administering agreements with other universities of the Commonwealth to carry out research projects;
disseminating new information and research results;
facilitating the application and transfer of new technologies
being a liaison between Virginia and the federal research funding agencies as an advocate for Virginia's water research needs;

encouraging the development of academic programs in water resources management in conjunction with the State Council on Higher Education.
