Coastal Water Resources Center

East Carolina University

The Coastal Water Resources Center (CWRC), within the Institute for Coastal Science and Policy at East Carolina University (ECU), is an interdisciplinary team committed to maintaining and improving the quantity and quality of water resources of the Coastal Plain of Eastern North Carolina.  Working with ECU researchers and water professionals, the center supports applied research to develop usable strategies that address scientific, economic, social and political issues specific to water resources in the North Carolina Coastal Plain.
