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 agricultural, environmental, and urban purposes. California State University, Fresno – in collaboration with a consortium of members in the water technology industry – came together to form ICWT.

Through applied technology, our goal is to provide efficient first use and effective reuse of water supplies worldwide.
