-- the Connecticut State Water Plan is under development. Visit http://ct.gov/water for updates --
The Connecticut Institute of Water Resources is part of a national network of 54 state water institutes created by the Federal Water Resources Research Act of 1964. The general purpose of the institutes is to promote research related to water resources and provide information transfer within each respective state or territory. In Connecticut our goals are to arrange for research related to freashwater resources, cooperate with Connecticut higher education institutions to develop programs to identify, discuss and resolve state and regional water, watershed, and related upland issues, and share research results and information regarding water resources in Connecticut.
