The 2014 New Hampshire Water and Watershed Conference will be held on Friday, March 21, 2014 at Plymouth State University. This year, the theme is Sustainability of New Hampshire’s Water Resources.
Each year, the NHWWC provides current information about New Hampshire’s water resources and related topics. Approximately 200 people attend the event to hear a variety of talks and network with other people interested in our water resources.
The 2014 agenda includes a morning plenary talk on the sustainability of New Hampshire’s water resources. Throughout the day there will be informative sessions on a variety of topics and we will close the event with an afternoon wrap-up discussion where participants will be able to ask questions and share ideas about water and sustainability in New Hampshire.
As part of the conference, we are including a meeting of the Sustainable Water Resources Roundtable (SWRR). SWRR is a national organization focusing on advancing our understanding of the nation’s water resources and the development of tools for their sustainable management. This will allow participants a unique opportunity to hear from a national organization and gain perspective on how water resource issues in New Hampshire compare and relate to issues in other states.
