Louisiana, Dutch groups work together on water research
BATON ROUGE - Research institutes in Louisiana and the Netherlands have agreed to work together on coastal protection and restoration initiatives.
The Baton Rouge-based Water Institute of the Gulf announced Monday that it has signed an agreement with Deltares of the Netherlands to collaborate on research and development aimed at combating erosion and better managing water resources.
Gov. John Bel Edwards attended the announcement. He described the partnership as critical to preserving Louisiana's coast while also making Louisiana a center of job-creating coastal research.
The partnership will focus on areas including software development, watershed modeling and infrastructure improvements. But greater specifics on what the scientists will work on together remain to be settled.
Deltares and the Water Institute had a previous agreement in place since 2011, but its scope was more limited.
