About Us

The Water Resiliency Program (WateResiliency) led by the University of Arizona has the mission of creating and sustaining water resiliency through transformative research and education in science, engineering, and technology innovations, with a particular focus on achieving water resiliency and self-sufficiency through the advancement of water reuse, especially potable water reuse. The program's overarching vision is to provide secure, safe, and sustainable water for all.


The key objectives include providing national leadership in integrating potable water reuse into water supply portfolios to ensure uninterrupted water supply, improve detection and treatment of newly introduced/detected viruses, pathogens, and emerging contaminants, enabling autonomous decentralized system, and educate a workforce invested in the formation of partnerships to facilitate technology export that supports global water security.

The Water Resiliency Program is part of the Water Reuse Consortium between the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC), the University of Southern California, the University of Arizona, and the University of Nevada, Reno.
