When the spillway of the United States’ tallest dam was compromised, more than 180,000 people living downstream in Oroville, California, had to evacuate. The California Department of Water Resources commissioned engineers at Utah State University’s Water Research Lab to find a solution. At the Utah Water Research Laboratory (UWRL), researchers strive to generate the knowledge needed to solve water problems now and in the future. UWRL Researchers span a diverse set of disciplines from environmental, to water resources, to hydraulics, to advanced sensing and information systems.

As a premier research institution, USU offers students several opportunities to engage in research. From the UWRL to the US. Department of Agriculture’s Bee Biology and Systematics Laboratory “Bee Lab,” students alongside faculty can engage in meaningful, impactful research.
