Located on Milwaukee’s inner harbor, the WATER Institute is the largest academic research center on the Great Lakes and a national leader for understanding freshwater systems and informing policy. Equipped with multiple aquatic laboratories, it faces a deep water harbor where scientists and students begin their voyages on the Neeskay, a 71-foot research vessel and floating laboratory.
In partnership with city and regional agencies, the Institute helps protect a resource that millions depend upon by monitoring water quality for pollution. It also measures the status of native fish and studies the impact of invasive species.
