The University of Nebraska has top- notch scientists, economists, engineers and legal minds working on water issues, such as groundwater and surface water interactions, declining aquifers, water quality, drought mitigation, water management tools, economic impacts associated with water management activities and the legal structures which govern Nebraska's water resources.

These research briefs highlight the work of University of Nebraska water faculty members and makes their expertise on relevant water issues easily accessible. The future of water resources in Nebraska depends on the ability of Nebraska's decision makers to make the best decisions for their constituents and the state. Connecting decision makers with University of Nebraska water researchers will do just that.

This compilation of research briefs is periodically updated and expanded. To share your recommendations about what should be included on this site, please contact:
