Water Quality Initiatives

The University of Idaho Coeur d’Alene is headquartered on the Spokane River at the outlet of Lake Coeur d’Alene. Set in the midst of the Coeur d’Alene River Basin, our location provides us with an outstanding natural laboratory to support the study of natural resource issues.

The University of Idaho conducts numerous research, education, and outreach activities focused on water quality. These educational efforts are designed to advance knowledge and improve the well-being of our citizens and their communities. Here you will find links to the university’s current water quality initiatives in Coeur d’Alene and elsewhere in Idaho.
