Since 1965, Water Resources Research Institutes have existed in each of the 50 states, the trust territories and the District of Columbia. This network of research institutes is responsible for planning and conducting research in the fields of water resources; training and educating future water scientists, engineers and technicians; embarking on preliminary exploration of new ideas that address water problems; and disseminating research results.
Because of its expertise in the areas of water resources and environmental research, Penn State's ERRI will now coordinate these activities on a regional basis, working with 13 other institutions which include: the universities of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Cornell, Rutgers, Delaware, Maryland, District of Columbia, West Virginia and Virginia Tech.
