International Center for Water Technology

The International Center for Water Technology (ICWT) was established to provide education and research to assist in developing and adopting innovative solutions and technologies that improve water use efficiency. The program’s broad mandate includes water supply and quality; flood protection; and environmental enhancement. Activities focus on extended education, laboratory and field research, and policy development.


Water is a finite resource. Responsible management requires the inclusion of all stakeholders to determine appropriate long-term use and allocation. While the program targets opportunities and issues within the San Joaquin Valley region, solutions and experiences are applicable worldwide.
