MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will have two buildings for its new School of Freshwater Sciences.
The school plans to use $50 million in state money to build an addition to its existing Great Lakes WATER Institute, where there will be laboratories and classroom space.
Also, the university's Real Estate Foundation and the Milwaukee Water Council, a group that promotes the area's water technology industry, will try to raise private funds to develop a second building on the city's south side. That will house academic applied research labs, conference space and business interests.
Construction is expected to start next year on both buildings.
