Colorado Stormwater Center
The Colorado Stormwater Center provides education, training and research opportunities with the goal of maintaining and improving the health of lakes, rivers and streams through proper stormwater management.
The Colorado Stormwater Center is housed in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Colorado State University (CSU) under the One Water Solutions Institute.
Our education and training events are conducted by a variety of experienced professionals that work with non-profit organizations, private industry/consulting firms, and government agencies to bridge the gap between academia and practice.
We conduct an array of research projects through the One Water Solutions Institute to advance our scientific understanding of stormwater management technologies, practices and policy’s.
The Colorado Stormwater Center is a connection point that doesn’t exist elsewhere – it provides resources, not only for government agencies and stormwater practitioners, but also for residents of Colorado and it makes those resources available throughout the state.
