Department of Water Ecology and Environment Research


The Department of Water Ecology and Environment Research, also main-body of the Research Center for Water Environment Monitoring and Assessment as well as the Examination Center for Water Quality Supervision and Inspection of the Ministry of Water Resources (MWR), was established in 2000. The Department has the A-class certificate (SEAC A1024) for Environmental Impact Assessment issued by the General Bureau of Environment Protection.

The Department has been approved by Certification and Accreditation Administration of the People's Republic of China (CNCA), and is also qualified for producing 48 types of national Grade II Water Environment Standard Reference Materials.

The Department has 6 research sections and a staff of 46, among which eight are professor-level senior engineers, 18 are senior engineers, and 12 are engineers. There are 22 holding a doctoral degree and 18 a Master's degree.
