UW-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences (SFS) is breaking ground on their new addition on Wednesday, June 6. The groundbreaking event will be held from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at the UWM Harbor Campus.
The building will be a $53 million addition to the Great Lakes Research Facility situated in the Harbor View neighborhood west of Jones’ Island. The project is scheduled to be completed by December 2013 and will contain classrooms, labs, faculty offices, meeting spaces and a lunch room all designed to meet the needs of the School as they continue to grow and revolutionize the way the world studies freshwater resources. David Garman, founding dean of the School of Freshwater Sciences said the building “will greatly expand our ability to understand freshwater issues.”
The tools and technologies we will have in place when it opens will be second to none. Together with the new centers and programs we’re introducing at the School, UWM will be one of the preeminent places in the world to study freshwater.
Please join us on June 6 as we celebrate the School of Freshwater Sciences’ success as they continue to grow and prepare the next generation of water researchers and innovators.
