Give ‘Em the Business: Resources for Management Students

Center for Water Resources Management

Director: Sarah J. Meyland

The Challenge

The challenge facing many of the world’s developing nations is how to match appropriate infrastructure technology to their specific problems and to deliver, install and maintain that technology. The critical environmental systems in demand include potable water, basic sanitary treatment, and sustainable power and distribution.  These systems enable communities to meet public necessities of health protection, jobs and economic vitality.  Fundamental environmental infrastructure is a necessity for all people if they are to prosper.  

The Center

The Center for Water Resources Management, within the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences at NYIT, is established to bridge the obstacles that prevent developing nations from securing new technology for safe water, effective wastewater treatment, and renewable energy necessary to improve the quality of life for small communities.  Within the US, many communities face water problems such as the depletion of aquifers, the spread of pollution, inadequate remediation of contamination, and new pollutants appearing in fresh water resources. 

Our Mission

To address problems created by a lack of clean and sustainable water, inadequate wastewater treatment, the discharge of pollutants into waters of regional importance, and the absence of relevant local information on water conditions. The Center will develop and advance innovative practices and technical solutions to improve the quality of life by meeting water-related needs, promote adaption in a changing world, increase public health protection and design policies that support sustainable use, management and conservation of water and related natural resources.

Our Goals

  • To research and develop methods and technical solutions to water problems in settings around the world
  • Develop critical information and promote practices and technologies that address water quality and quantity problems and protect public health
  • Promote advancements in water resource management, climate adaptation, and in the understanding of water resource systems
  • Provide research and educational opportunities for students, faculty and partners committed to innovation and creativity for essential infrastructure for water, wastewater, and climate adaptation
  • Work with communities to improve their water policies, laws, and knowledge of locally important water resources
