U.S. Geological Survey Awards UVI’s WRRI $92,000 to Expand & Support Research

The Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) at the University of the Virgin Islands received $92,335 this spring from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to fund three projects across the territory.  

Established in 1973 and now directed by Dr. Kristin Wilson Grimes, research assistant professor of Watershed Ecology, WRRI is one of 54 such institutes across the country that are dedicated to researching water resources and related issues. The institute trains students and water professionals, and provides management-relevant information to policy and decision makers. 

The current grant will expand ongoing projects and support new research. More information is available in a news release on the Media Section of the UVI website – - and from this direct link.
