Foundation for Water Research

The Foundation for Water Research (FWR) was an independent, membership based charity dedicated to education and information exchange, based in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, UK.

It was founded in 1989 with a mission to advance the education of the public in science, engineering and management of water through specialist forums, reviews of current knowledge, publishing and information support.

In 2022 the FWR was taken over by the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES).

FWRs vision is a society well informed on water and related environmental matters: one whose citizens are knowledgeable about the issues affecting the sustainable management of water and are thus empowered to contribute to environmental stewardship.

FWRs mission is to advance the education of the public in the science, engineering and management of water resources, water treatment, water supply and use of water, the collection, treatment and re-use of wastewaters, the water environment in general and related subjects.
