CREST CAChE is unifying the diverse, interdisciplinary pool of researchers into one center, which will enhance collaborations and partnerships. We are working in collaboration with governmental and private sector partners throughout South Florida to:
- Develop practical solutions to problems related to water quality in a natural-agricultural-urban setting
- Create a modeling platform that will enable policy-makers and managers to make informed decisions
In addition to providing research and resource management expertise, our collaborating partners provide access to data, potential students and internships at state (South Florida Water Management District), Federal (US Geological Survey, US Environmental Protection Agency, the National Park Service and the Department of the Interior), Native American (Miccosukee Tribe of Indians) organizations, and Educational Institutions (Miami Dade College, Florida Keys Community College, Miami-Dade County Public Schools).
