The UD WATER Project is a multi-disciplinary project focused on water resource management and water quality, with an emphasis on practices and programs that minimize UD’s impact on the White Clay creek, a wild and scenic river whose tributaries flow through the UD campus, and the Christina River.
The UD WATER Project team currently consists of faculty and professionals associated with the Delaware Water Resources Center, the UD Water Resources Agency, the Delaware Geological Survey, the University’s Stormwater Management and Grounds programs, and the City of Newark.
Interns will be selected and can begin work on their projects by October 5, 2012.
