In Fall 2011, The Geography and Planning Department started a student chapter of NYWEA. NYWEA was founded in 1929, by professionals in the field of water quality as a non-profit, educational organization. Association members helped lead the way toward existing state and national clean water programs. Today the Association has over 2,500 members representing diverse backgrounds and specialties, but all are concerned and involved with protecting and enhancing our precious water resources.
The Buffalo State NYWEA Chapter was featured in a recent Clearwaters article.
