Hurricane Ike reminded all of us about the importance of our drinking water. Now some of the leading experts in the field of drinking water are relocating to our own backyard.

The Institute for Public Health and Water Research has announced a new partnership with the Texas A&M Health Science Center School of Rural Public Health. That means it will be moving its headquarters from the University of Illinois at Chicago to Bryan/College Station.

In return, the Health Science Center is creating a new branch called the Center for Excellence in Public Health and Water Research.

The partnership will address a variety of water issues at home and around the world.
