Study Water Resources Management and Hydrology Online

Freshwater is an essential resource that, much like other natural resources, is in limited supply. According to the USGS, only 2.5 percent of the total global water supply is fresh and 68.7% of that is frozen into glaciers and ice caps. This means that less than one percent of all water on earth is available to be consumed by a population of nearly 7.5 billion people. Although surface freshwater and groundwater is replenished naturally, the rate of consumption versus replenishment is not always in balance.

As the global population continues to grow, sustainable water management is increasingly more vital. Colorado State University is actively working to enhance educational resources surrounding water management via academic programs and affiliate partnerships like the Colorado Water Institute. Start taking an active role in the study and advancement of water sustainability as you earn career-building credentials in one of CSU's online water resource management degree or certificate programs.
