Research

The Center conducts applied research to better understand the influence of land use activities on the health of our water resources and develop best practices to prevent and mitigate these impacts. This research provides the technical and scientific foundation to support all of our other work. Our strength lies in translating science into practical guidance for policymakers, scientists and other professionals. Much of this guidance is contained in the Center’s manuals, research papers and reports available for free download from the Online Watershed Library. As national experts in stormwater and watersheds, we also identify emerging and under-developed watershed issues, and encourage policymakers, scientists and funders to direct resources and attention to them.
