The DWRG is a collaboration between Profs. Robert Andrews, Ron Hofmann, and Susan Andrews. We are a group of approximately 30 graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and research mangers and associates. Our research facilities are located at the Department of Civil and Mineral Engineering, University of Toronto's St. George Campus, in the heart of downtown Toronto.

We collaborate with industry and government on a wide range of projects related to municipal drinking water. Our partnerships involve stakeholders that are local, national, and international. These collaborations ensure that our research addresses issues that are of timely relevance to the drinking water industry worldwide.
