About this grant

The Robert B. Annis Water Resources Institute, part of Grand Valley State University, is located in Muskegon, Michigan. The institute seeks to integrate research, education, and outreach in support of enhancing and preserving freshwater resources. With Mott support, the institute will examine the feasibility of more effectively integrating water management decisionmaking in the state of Michigan. With the help of a multidisciplinary advisory group, the institute will develop a white paper that outlines opportunities for increasing the coordination of water management decisions across various municipal, county, and state jurisdictions in a way that also includes other freshwater stakeholders, including farmers, businesses, and environmental groups.
