Our research program focuses on fundamental investigations and applied research to create a suite of successful water management options and decision-making tools. We study engineered and natural systems and the way in which they can be effectively integrated into the portfolio of urban water resources.
Some specific aims of this research are:
- Incorporating resource recovery and energy production into engineered water systems
- Engineering natural systems to improve water quantity, water quality, and habitat
- Overcoming impediments to adopting new urban water management strategies
- Developing technologies in concert with companies involved in the Center’s program
- Providing improved decision-making tools to decision makers
Our fundamental research on engineered and natural systems informs our water supply portfolio testbeds, which in turn will help us reinvent urban water systems.
ReNUWIt’s research program comprises more than 40 interrelated projects
- Urban Systems Integration and Institutions (U Thrust)
- Efficient Engineered System (E Thrust)
- Natural Water Infrastructure Systems (N Thrust)
