MORGANTOWN, WV (AP) - West Virginia University has created an
Institute of Water Security and Science to promote research on
stewardship, management, human health and other issues.
Water researcher Jason Hubbart will lead the institute. He says
pressure on water resources is at record levels.
University Vice President for Research Fred King says the idea is
to make sure people are responsible in taking care of water
resources for future generations.
Hubbart's background is in hydrology, water quality, watershed
management and land use research. He was previously an associate
professor of forest hydrology at the University of Missouri and is
a professor of hydrology through the Davis College of Agriculture,
Natural Resources and Design.
