The North Dakota Water Resources Research Institute was founded in 1965 by authority of Congress as one of the 54 Institutes throughout the nation and is administered through the United States Geological Survey. The Institute's office is located in the College of Engineering and Architecture of North Dakota State University (NDSU), the land grant university of the State.
Dr. Achintya Bezbaruah, assistant professor in civil engineering, NDSU and an affiliate faculty of the North Dakota Water Resources Research Institute, organized a teleconference “The Second International WateRediscover Conference” for middle and high school students from four different countries to present water research at NDSU on May 15, 2013. WateRediscover is an international program on water recycling/reuse among middle and high school students. Seven teams from Bangladesh, India, Saudi Arabia, and the USA presented their research findings from their six-month long projects in which they designed, fabricated, tested water treatment and wastewater recycling units following the Engineering Design Process (EDP).
President Bresciani, NDSU, inaugurated the teleconference. Vice-Chancellor of Tezpur University (India) Dr. Mihir Chaudhuri, NDSU Dean of Engineering and Architecture Dr. Gary Smith, and West Fargo School District Superintendent Dr. David Flowers addressed the participants.
