The Clemson Center for Watershed Excellence seeks to engage faculty, agents and students in delivering science-based solutions to water resources challenges.

Existing expertise at the Center includes the following areas:
In as much as possible, the Center will seek out grants and other funds to expand capabilities offered in partnership with communities and stakeholders. As a land grant university, Clemson seeks to bring research to the applied audience for the benefit of the people of South Carolina. Where existing expertise may not be identified, the partnerships with faculty and researchers have endless potential to benefit the public and our shared natural resources.
