You might be surprised at the breadth and depth of WSU research in the area of water. For example, did you know that the WSU Puyallup Low Impact Development (LID) Research Program has one of the largest LID installations in the nation? Researchers there are studying how to treat polluted stormwater using rain gardens and testing permeable pavement in full-scale parking lots.

Whether you are looking for information on the effects of pollutants on salmon, methods to conserve water, how to reduce your impact on water quality, or when it is safe to harvest clams, you have come to the right place.
