Confluence — News for the University's water community

Welcome to the The Confluence

The Water Resources Center is pleased to present this new forum for sharing water resource events and opportunities among colleagues across the University of Minnesota. The water community at the U is spread across many departments and colleges, exploring water from groundwater to the atmosphere, from rural to urban, from the campus to the world. The Confluence is meant to encourage these ideas to meet and mix. Contribute content to the Confluence using the link at the bottom.
