Each year WERI hosts the Guam Water Resources Research Advisory Council Meeting for water and environmental stakeholders in government agencies, military, and private sectors, as well as anyone who is interested in WERI’s research information. WERI presents an overview of its mission and vision, current status, project update, and recently accomplished research work. We provide professional scientific answers to questions concerning geology, water resources, water quality, climatology, groundwater, and information access/transfer. We also solicit research interests and concerns.
