Center for Water Resources and Environmental Research (CWRER)
The Center for Water Resources and Environmental Research (CWRER) conducts research on a considerable variety of topics in the water resources/environmental area including natural hazards, pollution movement, surface water and groundwater cleanup, wetland preservation, reservoir protection, watershed management, the hydraulics and hydrology of natural flow systems, non-point source pollution, ecology preservation, and other related subjects. Both the technical and sociopolitical issues arising from these studies are addressed. The Center offers regular research seminars on water resources, environmental engineering, and environmental ecology. The research, educational, and training programs are being carried out in close cooperation with the city, state, and federal agencies responsible for overseeing the nation's water and environmental resources as well as non-governmental organizations representing the public interest.
