2016 Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) / National Institutes of Water Resources (NIWR) Conference

The conference will be discussing critical water issues in the southeastern United States, as well as across the continent and globe.

Water quantity and quality concerns continue to take center stage in the United States and world. Please join the dialogue, as we seek to develop multi-disciplinary solutions to complex water problems.

The Conference Planning Committee invites you to propose a Special Session for the conference. A Special Session Organizers' role is to propose a relevant and timely subject, recruit speakers to submit abstracts to the session, and moderate the session during the June 2016 Conference.
