The Groundwater Protection and Restoration Research Group (GPRG) is an international centre of excellence for research on groundwater. GPRG seeks to make
a practical contribution to the protection and restoration of groundwater through international quality scientific research, supported by engineering
applications and wide dissemination. They maintain active collaborations with UK and overseas research colleagues and industry. Their wide remit emphasizes
pollution and protection issues related to industrial pollutants, urban groundwater, landfills and deep waste repositories, with research focused on the
following themes: Biodegradation Science, Geochemistry, Groundwater Modelling, Groundwater Restoration, Natural Attenuation and Urban Groundwater.
The Department of Town and Regional Planning are partners in Sustainable Urban Brownfield Regeneration: Integrated Management (SUBR:IM). SUBR:IM is
a major research consortium consisting of 9 research institutions working on 11 projects linking science and social science in the fields of engineering,
property and real estate, economics and planning to help tackle brownfield research problems. The research includes key stake holders from industry and national
and local government.
Sheffield hosts the Network on Natural Attenuation in Groundwater and Soil (NNAGS) website. NNAGS is the UK groundwater forum that aims to bring together
people from all areas to discuss Natural Attenuation, its concepts and other areas related to Natural Attenuation.
