Using World-Class Research and Technology to Solve Real-World Water Challenges
Water is the world’s most vital resource and, is arguably, the most critical sustainability issue in the 21st century. Resources are limited and stressed, while we demand more services from existing systems. Population growth and urbanization influence the health and livability of our communities. Decisions about the future conditions of our water systems are made under deep uncertainty.
OWSI provides world-class research and innovative technologies to create sustainable solutions and roadmaps to plan, design, and manage water resources and linked systems more efficiently. The Institute was founded to promote collaboration between the University and outside partners including public, private and non-government organizations.
