Missouri Water Center works to monitor water quality, quantities; train students
When it comes to water, there are a lot of stakeholders. Not only do we all need access to clean water—including fish and wildlife—but local economies rely on lakes and rivers for agriculture and tourism.

With those factors in mind, Mizzou established the Missouri Water Center a year ago, merging two former centers.
