Water in the Changing Coastal Environment of Delaware

Water security is a serious issue in Delaware and globally. 

Project WiCCED (Water in the Changing Coastal Environment of Delaware)

WiCCED is a multi-institution project in partnership with National Science Foundation and the State of Delaware aimed at assessing major threats to Delaware’s water quality, and developing viable technological and policy solutions for meeting the challenges imposed by them.

Improving Water Security

Improving water security is fundamentally about making better decisions, based on clear scientific understanding.

This research project brings together people across many disciplines — creating real solutions that will have a positive impact on our state and its citizens.
