The 2013 New Hampshire Water and Watershed Conference will be held on Friday, March 22, 2013 at Plymouth State University.
The conference agenda is designed to present the latest work on water resources in New Hampshire. This year, we are addressing current water related research as well as effective strategies at the local, regional, state, and federal levels that address the changing environmental and societal conditions and their effects on New Hampshire’s water resources and aquatic environment.
The sessions and talks at the conference are designed to meet the information and networking needs of a broad audience. In past years, scientists; educators; consultants; students; lake, river, and watershed groups; environmental organizations; volunteer monitors; municipal board and staff members; elected officials; local and regional planners; and policy makers have all found the conference to be full of valuable information addressing current water and watershed topics in New Hampshire. As in past years, we expect CEUs to be available this year for water system operators and natural resource professionals.
Our plenary speaker at the 2013 NH Water and Watershed Conference will be Linwood Pendleton who will present a talk on “Clean Water and the New Hampshire Economy.” Linwood is director of the Ocean and Coastal Policy Program at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and acting chief economist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
