WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH INSTITUTE (WRRI)
The Water Resources Research Institute’s (WRRI) mission is to provide the District of Columbia with interdisciplinary research support that identifies water resource issues and contributes to solutions. In addition to coordinating and facilitating water resource-related research projects through seed grants provided to faculty members from the consortium of universities in the District, the institute provides training. It disseminates research findings that address water issues in the DC area and beyond. The institute supports collaborative research that engages faculty members, students, and a broad array of stakeholders to address regional water issues holistically.
