The Colorado School of Mines recently announced its involvement in the Water Resources Institute, in response to the World Water Day and the White House Water Summit, as it works to implement safe and reliable water sources within the western regions of the U.S.

The Water Resources Institute was established by the Colorado School of Mines and is an important topic for the school that already has more than 100 of its faculty members and researchers conducting work in the topic.

The institute plans to collaborate with the National Science Foundation-funded Engineering Research Center, Reinventing the Nation’s Urban Water Infrastructure, Mines Advanced Water Technology Center and other organizations.

Within the industry of water, the college’s topics of study include the impact of climate change on water resources, creating engineered and natural water systems which will better help the prediction of water cycles, as well as use, supply and shortage estimations.

Additionally, the school focuses on the public opinion and social policy connected with the energy water-nexus, the development of advanced water policy decisions and discovering new approaches to the treatment and use of reclaimed, storm and other previously used water.
