HDR’s Water Institute

Three in-house laboratories, various mobile testing capabilities and over 50 technical experts passionate about research create the foundation of our Water Institute. The other layers involve you: utility clients, research organizations, equipment vendors and universities.

Together, we tackle the 21st-century water supply and treatment challenges. These challenges are spurred by water availability, financial pressures, regulatory drivers, and the desire to protect public health.

We want to help you discover unbiased answers and tailored solutions. With water source to tap capabilities, including meteorology, operations and financial insights, we are ready to solve your questions that need answers.

Applied Research Brings Results to All Partners

We support independent and collaborative research studies for numerous government and professional organizations (USEPA, WRF, WRRF and WERF), as well as industrial foundations, universities and utility research partners.

With many research projects completed or underway, we are committed to providing the resources needed—human labor, technical expertise, equipment and facility space—to support the discovery and development of innovative solutions and apply these new processes or technologies back into the marketplace.
