The Institute of Water Research (IWR) at MSU provides timely information for addressing contemporary land and water resource issues through coordinated multidisciplinary efforts using advanced information and networking systems. The IWR endeavors to strengthen MSU's efforts in nontraditional education, outreach, and interdisciplinary studies utilizing available advanced technology, and partnerships with local, state, regional, and federal organizations and individuals. Activities include coordinating education and training programs on surface and ground water protection, land use and watershed management, and many others.
The purpose of this web site is to provide general winter maintenance curricula, training materials and other references in order to promote understanding of best practices for snow and ice abatement and control in Michigan and help reduce road salt environmental impacts on water resources, infrastructure and agricultural commodities.
