About Us

The Water Resources Institute coordinates research programs which are applicable to the solution of present and emerging water resource problems. In carrying out this mission, the Institute has developed a broadly based research, training, information transfer, and public service program involving personnel from many academic disciplines in the University of Wisconsin System.

The Wisconsin Institute is one of 54 Water Resources Research Institutes nationwide authorized by the federal Water Resources Research Act. The state-based Water Resources Research Institutes are located at land grant universities and promote research, training, and information dissemination on the nation's water resources problems.
