The National Water Research Institute (NWRI) supports projects and programs focused on ensuring safe, reliable sources of water now and for future generations. Activities include encouraging public support of better water practices such as conservation and water use efficiency, implementing strategies that better allocate and sustain water resources on regional and national levels, protecting existing water supplies from impacts on quality and quantity, developing technologies that identify and remove new contaminants from water supplies, identifying treatment technologies that are cost and energy-efficient, and educating youth on water issues and future water needs.
