The U.S. Army Engineer Institute for Water Resources (IWR) was created "to provide forward-looking analysis and research in developing methodologies to aid the Civil Works program." Their website is well-organized, and the homepage features a "How Do I"" set of links that will swiftly direct visitors to areas about IWR history, contact information, projects, and publications. The "Latest News and Project Highlights" is a good place to start, as it contains information about recent workshop projects, new fact sheets on IWR projects, and recent policy statements. Policy types will want to click on the "Publications" area straight away to read reports on environmental investments, alternative dispute resolution, and dam safety. Other visitors may wish to look at the "Featured Projects" area, which includes dredging data materials, details on harbor maintenance, and their hydrologic modeling system.
