About This Website
The purpose of this website is to provide easy access to water-related information and programs of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS).
Enhancing and protecting water quality, water quantity, and water supply are high-priorities of the UF/IFAS Cooperative Extension Service. This is because water plays a critical role in sustaining Florida’s environment and economic vitality, which are keys to a high quality of life. Florida must enhance and protect its domestic water supply while also meeting the water requirements of agriculture, horticulture, tourism, and industry, as well as the state’s 20 million inhabitants and its natural systems, all without placing undue pressure on a finite resource.
There are so many UF/IFAS programs and research on water-related topics that it can be difficult to know where to begin. By collecting links to this information in one place, we hope to provide that starting point for you.
For more information on this site and its mission, please contact Dr. Kati Migliaccio, professor, Agricultural and Biological Engineering. For technical questions or help with this website, contact the webmaster. Be sure to include "UF/IFAS water site" in the subject line.
