Water Design Center
The Center for Water Design

At Garver's Water Design Center, our in-house engineers, designers, and technicians provide technical expertise in all areas required to successfully deliver sound solutions and quality designs. The WDC provides a high-performance team that can execute large, high-volume, custom plant projects with advanced technologies.

While the WDC's integrated team can deliver water treatment plant projects with proficiency and focus, the Water Design Center is also a testament to Garver's commitment to research and development.

Because of the company's working knowledge of applied water/wastewater treatment strategies and the WDC's proximity to the University of Arkansas, Garver has forged a strategic relationship with leading researchers at the College of Engineering. The National Science Foundation recognizes the potential public benefit of the partnership between Garver and the University and the result is the U of A's admission to the NSF's MAST–Membrane, Science, Engineering and Technology–Center. MAST is a multi-campus collaboration that includes such institutions as the University of Colorado and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. Together, these institutions, with support from companies like Garver, focus on developing materials for energy production, water treatment, pharmaceutical purification and chemical processing.

Our Water Design Center is where academia meets industry and where research meets application. Garver's goal is to deliver clean water in a safe, cost-effective way. As water becomes a more precious resource, so does the knowledge and experience of our Water Design Center.
