The New Hampshire Water and Watershed Conference (NHWWC) is an annual forum for sharing water resource information. Each year, over 175 academics, regulators, non-profit organizations, water resource professionals, land use planners, elected officials, and others gather to share information on regional water resource issues including water quality and supply.

The theme of the 2020 NH Water and Watershed Conference is Persistent and Evolving Water Issues. Please see the agenda for more details about sessions and talks.
