It’s all about water.
Whether you’re a homeowner, farmer, citizen scientist, or simply enjoy life-long learning, here you’ll find WSU publications, training opportunities, partner information, research and programs and timely news on important water-related issues.
WSU Extension, in partnership with WSU’s world class researchers, brings you this wealth of water related information on many aspects of fresh and salt water in Washington state.
The conference Climate Impacts to Water will be held on January 25 & 26, 2017 at the Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, Washington.
The future food production and processing systems in our region are expected to be challenged by water supply due to decreased snow pack and issues associated with water access and rights. In addition, excess water from heavy rain events and untimely precipitation are expected to cause issues with water quality and flood events. These uncertainties make it very difficult for the agriculture, water managers, and storm water communities to make decisions.
This conference should be of interest to those managing water in agricultural, irrigation district managers, and storm water planners. The common theme will be creating a dialogue amongst the communities that use and value the regions water supply and water quality. We hope you will join us. Registration is now open.

Did you know?
You might be surprised at the breadth and depth of WSU research in the area of water. For example, did you know that the WSU Puyallup Low Impact Development (LID) Research Program has one of the largest LID installations in the nation? Researchers there are studying how to treat polluted stormwater using rain gardens and testing permeable pavement in full-scale parking lots.
Whether you are looking for information on the effects of pollutants on salmon, methods to conserve water, how to reduce your impact on water quality, or when it is safe to harvest clams, you have come to the right place.
