Wisconsin’s Water Initiative Takes Shape
If water is the new oil, having an abundance of both water and college-educated water technology professionals statewide could give Wisconsin a competitive edge in attracting new companies that require expertise in managing what could be the 21st century's No. 1 commodity.

A five-campus Universtity of Wisconsin System Initiative was launched which will expand the state’s water technology focus and do more research.

UW-Milwaukee's School of Freshwater Sciences will establish an Aquatic Research Experience for Undergraduates to include science, technology, engineering and math students from other UW System institutions.

UW-Madison's Sea Grant Institute and its Center for Limnology, as two examples among many units focusing on water, will advance STEM activities by promoting Great Lakes and ocean sciences at the K-12 and undergraduate levels.
UW-Stevens Point will commit to expanding enrollment of STEM students, and giving them enhanced access to the Central Wisconsin Environmental Station, a Water and Environmental Analysis Laboratory, the Wisconsin Institute for Sustainable Technology Laboratory and a state-of-the-art paper laboratory.

UW-Superior's Partnerships in Education Program will involve a comprehensive freshman-to-senior-year experience centered in the Lake Superior Research Institute and the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve. It also will offer a water-focused STEM curriculum and hands-on research activities in freshwater conservation and water quality.

UW-Whitewater will collaborate through its integrated science and business water programs and new environmental science major. The programs support careers in water technology businesses, public and private organizations that manage water and land resources, agencies that form or implement water-related policies, and innovative ventures on water-related issues.

Chemical Promotes Dangerous Algae Blooms - Wisconsin is not fully enforcing strict phosphorus limits adopted two years ago to reduce lake-algae blooms that make people sick. The state Legislature in 2010 approved DNR regulations intended to cut down on the amount of phosphorus running into waterways, where it causes algae to grow so thick that the water turns to green soup. The regulations are aimed at wastewater treatment plants, paper mills and factories – which are required to reapply for permits at five-year intervals.
