Welcome to the Engineering Research Center for Re-inventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure
We are an interdisciplinary, multi-institution research center whose goal is to change the ways in which we manage urban water. Our vision is of safe, sustainable urban water infrastructures enabled by technological advances in natural and engineered systems, and informed by a deeper understanding of institutional frameworks.
Our research team integrates the efforts of researchers trained in fields including environmental engineering, ecology, city planning, economics and law to develop innovative approaches to address the problems facing urban water systems. Working in close partnership with utilities, water service providers, equipment manufacturers and international research partners we convert great ideas into practical and sustainable solutions.
ReNUWIt is funded through the National Science Foundation’s Engineering Research Center Program. Our partner institutions include Stanford University (lead), University of California at Berkeley, Colorado School of Mines, and New Mexico State University.
