Our Mission


Our mission at the Water Research Institute of Blue Hill (WRI) is to discover a definition of good water that is not based on the absence of pollutants or upon negatives, but rather is based upon the nature of water itself.


This can be observed through water’s behavior and the conditions water needs in order to serve life.


We work in association with the Institut für Strömungswissenschaften, the pioneers in this work.

Why do we look at water phenomena to teach us about water?


  • Human beings long to know themselves and others well. Water, too, needs to be known, in order to be understood.


  • 2) We are water. Nature is water: in the details large and small we are thus linked through this common substance.


  • Water reveals its story through its behavior.
