Michigan State University is fortunate to have access to abundant water resources. The Red Cedar River winds through the main campus, numerous wetlands exist throughout the MSU property, and groundwater serves as the sole source of drinking water for the campus and surrounding communities.

The University manages our shared waters resources by implementing campus-based best management practices and collaborative activities with communities throughout the Red Cedar River Watershed. The purpose of this website is to share information about these activities and encourage you to learn more about the water resources in the Mid-Michigan area.
