The University of Iowa will be a key partner in a new $360 million center to improve the United States’ ability to predict water-related hazards and better manage its water.
Iowa will receive $21 million during the next five years as a partner in the Cooperative Institute for Research to Operations in Hydrology (CIROH), funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The national center will be led by the Alabama Water Institute at the University of Alabama. Officials announced the new national center on April 6.
