March 23, 2018 at Plymouth State University, Plymouth, NH
The New Hampshire Water and Watershed Conference (NHWWC) is a key event for sharing water resource information. For 2018, the event will focus on regional environmental stresses and how we are adapting to new information, emerging issues, and current events affecting water quality and water supply. The conference will have sessions and posters that connect information and research to the practice of adaptive management. Sessions will be organized around a variety of water resource topics, such as the use of water data, emerging contaminants, water supply issues, nonpoint source pollution, stormwater, and low impact design.
We invite talks and posters that demonstrate relevant research and case studies applicable to New Hampshire that will allow participants to learn successful approaches and obstacles to watershed science and management. Abstracts are due on January 17, 2018 at 4:00 pm.
A summary report of the 2017 NHWWC conference is available. The 2017 conference focused on what has transpired during the past ten years and what we might expect during the next ten and beyond on key issues related to pollutants, rivers and streams, water infrastructure, climate change, mitigation and restoration, technology and tools, and outreach.
