Center for Watershed Science & Education
University of Wisconsin–Stevens Point

The Center for Watershed Science and Education is a UW-Extension and UW-Stevens Point College of Natural Resources center that assists citizens, communities, and businesses in their water resources needs through education, applied research, technical assistance, planning, and partnership building.

The center provides drinking water testing and interpretation for thousands of Wisconsin citizens annually and works with dozens of lakes and rivers groups on the health of their surface waters. Through its Groundwater Guardian Program, the center is working to build groundwater knowledge and leadership skills in Wisconsin citizens. Center staff members are also playing pivotal roles in a number of state groundwater issues, including helping to draft Wisconsin’s 2004 Groundwater Quantity Legislation.
