Sac State will use $10M grant to make drinking water safer

iWEST logo The Institute for Water, Energy, Sustainability, and Technology at Sacramento State – also known as iWEST – has been awarded two grants totaling as much as $10 million over the next three years to provide technical assistance to disadvantaged California communities that need cleaner drinking water.

The grants, awarded by the State Water Resources Control Board’s Office of Sustainable Water Solutions, are the largest so far under the leadership of iWEST founding executive director Debbie Whaley, a groundwater hydrologist with 30 years’ experience solving water, energy, and environmental challenges around the world.

“Our goal is to partner with the state as it develops an approach to making sure that these communities can maintain their systems, all the while giving our students a real-world experience,” Whaley says.
