Description: The Center for Environmental Research [CER] is a joint project of the Austin Water and Wastewater Utility, the University of Texas, and Texas A&M University, and its mission is to promote research and education about urban sustainability and ecology. It is located at the 1200-acre Hornsby Bend Biosolids Management Plant, an award-winning facility that recycles urban "wastes" back into the local ecosystem as food for microorganisms. The facility is on the edge of Austin along 3.5 miles of the Colorado River, and
it is responsible for treating and reusing all of Austin's biosolids (treated sewage sludge) and all yard trimmings through onsite agriculture and composting. Moreover, Hornsby Bend is the most popular birdwatching site in the Austin area - harboring 365 species of birds along with an abundance of other wildlife - and is recognized by the Audubon Society as a Texas Important Bird Area.
