About Us


The Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory was initiated by faculty in the Department of Geology & Environmental Science in 2017. In January 2018, funding was received from the Heinz Endowments. During the past two years, the Water Collaboratory has conducted extensive outreach efforts to gauge research needs in the region with respect to key water challenges: water quality, green infrastructure, and flooding. These outreach efforts resulted in a series of three community consensus reports documenting input from over 200 participants and set the stage for the University of Pittsburgh to become a major force in advancing environmental and economic sustainability in the region.
