The Iowa Water Center strives toward a robust and connected water science community in Iowa. This Water Expert Directory is comprised of water researchers, agency representatives, university faculty members, and other water professionals from across the state of Iowa. This directory is intended as a resource for potential project collaborators among water scientists, interview/subject matter expert requests for media, and connections to researchers for community members and educators.
