Fact Sheet

The University of Michigan Water Center addresses critical and emerging water resource challenges. We are driven by the desire to ensure management of our water resources is informed by the best possible science. Our mission is to improve the policy and management decisions that affect our waters by integrating decision makers and other end users into collaborative research projects. This integration fosters learning by all participants and the co-production of high-quality, usable, science-based information that can lead to innovative solutions. We also design and implement innovative grant-making processes that support collaborative research.

Paper/Project Report

Co-authored by Joseph DePinto of LimnoTech and Margaret Kalcic of the U-M Water Center, this proceedings document describes a regional Great Lakes SWAT Modeling workshop hosted by the Water Center in March 2014. SWAT, which stands for Soil Water Assessment Tool, is a powerful model that allows users to determine the impacts of land management practices on water, sediment, and nutrient yields in agricultural watersheds. It is used frequently to answer land management questions and to inform nonpoint source pollution control decisions in agricultural watersheds such as Western Lake Erie, Green Bay, and Saginaw Bay.
