What is The International Center for Water Technology (ICWT)?

The International Center for Water Technology is a public-private partnership dedicated to the development and application of advanced technologies that enhance water use for urban, environmental, and agricultural purposes.  California State University, Fresno, in collaboration with a growing consortium of members in the water technology industry, have joined together to form ICWT.
