Central Water & Power Research Station (CWPRS), Pune, INDIA, under the aegis of The Indian Society for Hydraulics (ISH) is organizing, International Conference on Hydraulics, Water Resources, Coastal & Environmental  Engineering (HYDRO 2016 International) during December 8-10, 2016 at CWPRS, Pune.  The conference aims at providing an international level forum for disseminating of recent contributions in the field of Hydraulics, Water Resources, Coastal & Environmental  Engineering from Scientists, Researchers, Academicians, Practice Engineers and Consultants.


The Central Water and Power Research Station (CWPRS), Pune, as it is known today, was established in 1916 by the then Bombay Presidency as a “Special Irrigation Cell” with a limited mandate to modify irrigation practice to meet agricultural requirements.  With the dawn of independence and launching of planned development of the nation’s water resources, CWPRS became the principal central agency to cater to the R&D needs of projects in the fields of water and energy resources development and water-borne transport. Today, CWPRS, a part of the Union Ministry of Water Resources,  River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, is one of the foremost organisations in the world in the field of hydraulics and allied research.

CWPRS provides specialised services through physical and mathematical model studies in river training and flood control, hydraulic structures, harbours, coastal protection, foundation engineering, construction materials, pumps and turbines, ship hydrodynamics, hydraulic design of bridges, environmental studies, earth sciences, and cooling water intakes. The studies conducted by CWPRS are able to provide hydraulically sound and economically viable solutions to various problems associated with projects on water resources, energy and water-borne transport including coastal and harbour engineering. As the Regional Laboratory of ESCAP since 1971, CWPRS has offered its services to a number of projects in the neighbourhood countries as well as countries in Middle East and Africa.
