About Us

Main content start

The Water Resources and Civil Infrastructure (WRCI) Group is within Sustainability & Energy Management, in the Land, Buildings and Real Estate Department

The Group consists of an Engineering team, a Water Planning & Stewardship team, and a Water Shop team. The WRCI Group is responsible for the engineering, operation, and maintenance of the water distribution, storm drainage system, sanitary sewer system, roads, bridges, and dams; with a focus on sustainability. The water systems include domestic (potable), lake (for irrigation), and alternative water supplies. Components include wells, reservoirs, pump stations, and creek diversion facilities, in addition to pipe networks. The Stanford civil infrastructure systems are comparable in size and complexity to those of a medium-size city or district.
