Water Resources Research at UAF

Managing water resources has become increasingly important given given the increased demands on freshwater access for human consumption and natural processes. That’s where the National Institutes for Water Resources (NIWR) plays a major role, by providing a national platform for research, training and collaboration needed to manage our water resources.

Housed in the country’s top land-grant universities, NIWR’s institutes are uniquely positioned to assist state and federal governments in advancing sustainable management of our water supply.

Each of the 50 states has a regional NIWR institute and the Water and Environmental Research Center at UAF are a primary link between water experts at the university and the local water managers and stake holders.
