Over the next few years, 4,000 scientists, engineers and researchers will work on The Water Campus. It will provide approximately 1.6 million square feet of space for basic and applied research, academic functions, public education resources and displays and administrative offices, all sufficient enough to meet current and anticipated future needs. The Campus will be the focal point of a new skyline for Baton Rouge and will enhance the efforts to restore and enhance coastal environments.
