CREWS University or “CREWS-U” is a resource for Montana professionals ranging from land resources managers and wastewater operators to K-12 teachers and informal educators who wish to obtain professional development and resources that relate to the research findings and broad concepts of the Montana NSF EPSCoR Track-1 project (CREWS stands for the Consortium for Research on Environmental Water Systems).
Between 2000 and 2010, CREWS partner the Montana Water Center created a series of online, CD, and DVD training resources for and small water and wastewater systems operators. Created through a series of grants from the EPA, these resources provided valuable training and continuing education opportunities, particularly for small, rural water system operators.
The CREWS RII Track-1 project will offer summer undergraduate research internship opportunities in project years 2-5 (starting summer 2020). Our approach is for students to work directly with faculty leading research activities as part of the CREWS research agenda.
