CITRA provides support in research grant proposal writing and conducting academic research that suits the client’s needs. We focus on applying our in-house developed numerical model (or commercial software) to practical water-related problems. Our main focus is numerical modeling of various processes, such as:
Hydrologic & Hydraulic
Sediment transport analysis
Groundwater and infiltration
Storm surge and coastal flooding
Multi-flood hazard events
CITRA provides data collection and processing services to help your project. We have experience in various terrains, such as steep riverine watersheds, coastal marsh wetlands, and groundwater wells. We provide the following data collection:
Stream discharge and surveying.
Groundwater wells monitoring (depth and water quality)
Rainfall gauge and weather station deployment
Our experience of more than seven years as a licensed practitioner engineer gives us the confidence and required skills to endure any engineering design study. Our Principal Investigator has been registered as a Professional Engineer (P.E. License) since 2020 at the Puerto Rico Engineering Board. Our main services are for:
Sediment Transport Analysis
Bay Circulation Assessments
Design of hydraulic structures: bridges, culverts, river canalization
Stormwater and sewer drainage systems
Detention and retention ponds

Education & Outreach
Education and outreach are essential components of any project. We believe that our solutions should be designed from the community perspective. CITRA has experience creating focus groups and workshops to survey community needs.
CITRA offers complementary hands-on activities and demonstrations for middle- and high-school classes in water-related concepts, such as watershed stewardship, hydrologic cycle, infiltration, coastal erosion, and green infrastructure. We also provide free tours of our Fluid Mechanics Lab hosted in the Driftmier Engineering Center, which has a channel flume and a river sediment table.
