Developing solutions that provide economic, environmental, and social benefits.

Our Goals

Our transdisciplinary team of geologists, ecologists, engineers, data scientists, modelers, geographers, anthropologists, planners, and attorneys work to develop solutions that provide economic, environmental, and social benefits, rigorously quantify the outcomes, and adaptively manage to promote understanding and improve subsequent decision making.

The Water Institute is an independent, non-profit, applied research institution advancing science and developing integrated methods to solve complex environmental and societal challenges.

How we work

The Water Institute methodology employs applied science to assist communities to make informed decisions by evaluating science, research, and community priorities.
