About Us

The Regional Water Quality Coordination Program, one component of the CSREES National Water Quality Program, seeks to ensure the integration of water quality efforts within the jurisdiction of each of the ten regions established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Program is designed to make research, education, and extension resources of the university system more accessible to Federal, State, and local water quality improvement efforts, thus enhancing opportunities for agricultural producers and agriculturally impacted communities to adopt voluntary approaches for the improvement of water quality.

States and territories within the Southwest States and Pacific Islands Region (EPA Region IX) include Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, American Samoa, Guam, Marshal Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas, and Palau. Two 1994 Tribally-Controlled Community Colleges (TC3), Diné College in Arizona and D-Q University in California, are also members of the Region.

Hawaii’s component of the Regional Water Quality
Research and Extension Coordination

Carl I. Evensen is the Principal Investigator for Hawaii, and a Professor with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources.

The objective of Hawaii's component of this project is to improve water quality management through educational knowledge and extension programming that emerges from a research base. This web site is a product of this effort. It is a “living” site that will be updated and expanded on as the region continues to develop and share new and existing management techniques, financial resources, and educational programs.
