Water Resources

Fresh water is a renewable resource, but our supply of it is steadily decreasing and in danger of disappearing altogether in some heavily populated areas. Switzer Fellows working in this area are working to solve some of the most pressing questions in the field, including how to protect drinking water from industrial contamination, how the western U.S. can survive ongoing drought conditions due to climate change, and what new technologies might help us conserve this precious resource.
