Virginia Water Resources Research Center (VWRRC)

The Virginia Water Resources Research Center was established at Virginia Tech in 1965 under the federal Water Resources Research Act of 1964 and designated as a state agency in 1982 by the Virginia General Assembly under the Code of Virginia (§23-135.7:8). The Code of Virginia explains that the VWRRC exists “for the purposes of developing, implementing, and coordinating water and related land research programs in the commonwealth and transferring the results of research and new technology to potential users.” All colleges and universities in the commonwealth are served by the VWRRC. The center has a long- standing tradition of providing research and educational opportunities to future water scientists, promoting research on practical solutions to water resources problems, and facilitating timely transfer of water science information to policy- and decision-makers and the general public.
