At the White House, Kauffman and 200 other attendees heard from the
administration and five U.S. congressmen that water resources research
at universities such as the University of Delaware is especially
pertinent because water is one of America's top domestic public policy
challenges right now. The push is on to invest more in this economic and
environmental resource to prevent another Flint River, California
drought, or coastal flood emergency from occurring.

of Guam, Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.

Sciences and the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in
the College of Engineering.
