MSU Water Alliance
The MSU Water Alliance brings together experts across the University to push the boundaries of discovery and find solutions to water-related challenges through research, education, and engagement with communities and industries.
Water is the most precious and essential resources for life on Earth. It is a key component of many biological processes and in many industries, such as agriculture, energy production and manufacturing. Given its importance in every aspect of our lives, it’s no surprise that finding solutions to complex water challenges like climate change and pollution require an interconnected approach, with collaboration across disciplines and sectors.
The MSU Water Alliance is led by MSU’s Office of Research and Innovation in partnership with MSU AgBioResearch, MSU Extension, and the Homer Nowlin Endowment. Over the next two years, the MSU water community will be building the Alliance and developing its water research, education, and engagement programs. This site invites you to explore the variety of water-related work at MSU and to join us as we launch the MSU Water Alliance.

Increasing Crop Yield and Reducing Water Consumption with Precision Irrigation
Younsuk Dong, an Assistant Professor and Extension Specialist at the MSU Department of Biosystem and Agricultural Engineering, has created a system that will improve irrigation and plant disease management
Climate Change Threatens Asia’s Water Tower
MSU researchers are identifying policy changes that need to happen now to prepare for the future impacts projected by climate models. The rapid melting of glaciers and snowpack due to regional temperature increases has caused an unprecedented decline in water availability. This creates cascading impacts on water, food and energy security.
Learning From the Meltwater Stonefly Before We Lose It
These alpine insects face a dire future, but MSU researchers are helping make sure we learn the valuable lessons they can still share
