Welcome to the Web site of the Center for Research in Water Resources, a research component of the Bureau of Engineering Research at The University of Texas at Austin. Located at UT's J.J. Pickle Research Campus, CRWR carries out advanced research, education, design, and planning in water resources and waste management, primarily related to Texas but also involving other areas of the country as well as foreign countries.

The mission of CRWR is to:

  • serve as the central focus for environmental and water resources research at the University;
  • communicate the results of its advanced research to government, industry, and other educational institutions;
  • work with other agencies and institutions in Texas to solve the State's complex water problems:
  • act as a regional center for water-related research, education, planning, and practical design;
  • share relevant experience and provide support to graduate students of the University by involving them in applied research
