A statewide project supported by the National Science Foundation is seeking input from professionals working in water-related occupations on their professional development needs.

The survey is being conducted by team members from the Montana NSF Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ESPCoR) and the Montana Water Center working on the Consortium for Research on Environmental Water Systems (CREWS). It seeks feedback on the professional development topics, formats and timing would be valuable to people who work in water-related industries, including state agencies, local municipalities, private consultancies, nonprofits, and other areas.

The survey takes five to 10 minutes, and all who complete it can sign up to be notified of future workshops and courses. To access the survey, please visit

Montana NSF EPSCoR is a program designed to grow Montana’s research and development capacity. Its latest research project is CREWS, which studies Montana’s environmental water systems and water quality issues while also advancing workforce development commercialization of project science, STEM education, and diversity and inclusion.
