The EWR research facilities are comprised of multiple laboratories that contain equipment for performing basic and advanced research in the fields of environmental and water resources engineering. The laboratories and offices are located in Patton Hall, Hancock Hall, Durham Hall, Kelly Hall, ICTAS II, and Femoyer Hall. The majority of faculty and graduate student offices are housed in Durham, Patton, and Femoyer Halls. The research facilities located in Patton Hall include computer laboratories, a groundwater engineering laboratory, and instructional hydraulics laboratories. The groundwater laboratory houses field testing equipment for soil and groundwater sampling at hazardous waste sites. The testing equipment includes soil augers, multi-level groundwater well installation components, and complete field-grade Hach water chemistry capabilities.
Our faculty and students tackle real-world problems through innovation and collaboration across disciplines. The research we perform is in all areas of civil engineering practice and is leading the way to provide immediate and significant benefit to society while also creating a sustainable infrastructure for the future.
