Water Groups Seek Abstracts for 2017 Fall Conferences

Later in the spring you will hear about ASDWA’s call for papers for our fall Annual Conference.  We hope you will share your state stories there.  However, several other water organizations have fall conferences where the state experience can also be shared and abstract submission deadlines are pending.  Please review the announcements below and see if any of them would benefit from hearing about your experience and perspectives.
WateReuse:  The WateReuse Association is accepting abstracts for the 32nd Annual WateReuse Symposium in Phoenix, AZ September 10-13, 2017.  The Annual WateReuse Symposium brings together water managers and industry leaders to learn what’s working and what’s next in water reuse and desalination policy, operations, technology and public perception.  Submit your best case studies and experiences that follow the full life-cycle of recycled water – from planning and communications to implementation and lessons learned.

  • How do we regulate reuse?
  • How are we expanding the boundaries of how recycled water is applied?
  • What are our success stories of planning and implementation?
  • How has technology opened new horizons?

Please submit your abstract by February 27, 2017 via the WateReuse website.  You will be notified if you have been accepted on the program on April 17, 2017.
