The Minnesota Stormwater Research Council (MSRC) is a not-for-profit organization established in 2016 to:

  • Facilitate the completion of needed applied research that enables more informed decisions about the use, management and protection of our water resources in urbanized areas.

  • Periodically assess the status of research, identify consensus research priorities, and communicate these to Minnesota’s public and private research agencies and organizations.

  • Promote coordination of research goals, objectives and funding among the research agencies and organizations.

The MSRC is an independent organization of stormwater professionals, practitioners, managers, engineers, researchers and others currently operating as an unincorporated association with the University of Minnesota Water Resources Center (WRC) as the fiscal agent.
