The water Institute of the Gulf was created to serve as a collaboration hub among the best scientists and engineers in the world. The Water Institute is driving innovation in coastal restoration and hurricane protection.

The development of the Water Campus is made possible by the partnership between the State of Louisiana, the City of Baton Rouge and the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and will comprise of land purchased and donated from the East Baton Rouge Housing Authority, the State of Louisiana and the City of Baton Rouge. The initial phase includes the dedication of approximately 30 acres and a $45 million construction investment for (3) facilities. The new campus will only strengthen the efforts to address the coastal issues facing Louisiana but also provides a database for conditions worldwide. The work here will also support a growing coastal protection industry. Surrounding areas will be privately developed but will be consistent with the Water Campus Master Plan. The Louisiana Economic Development is in strong support as it views water management as a one of the key factors for state growth and development. The Coastal Protection & Restoration Authority (CPRA) Chair Garret Graves said, “The loss of south Louisiana communities, industry and seafood to hurricanes, floods and erosion is the greatest threat facing our state today.
