 This year's theme is Making Connections ? Solving Problems: Water strategies for success in a changing world.
Through plenary and breakout sessions, conference goers will explore current trends across water resource management in both urban and rural landscapes, with a particular emphasis on the interconnected nature of our water resources, and the opportunities this offers for collaboration.
Attendees can anticipate sessions in stormwater and floodplain management and the intersection of agriculture and the environment, with each track incorporating technical presentations, education and outreach information and problem-solving workshops. The conference will also offer sessions for poster and oral presentations from water professionals, as well as a poster competition for students.
The Iowa Water Conference is an annual gathering of water professionals, researchers, educators and students from across Iowa and surrounding states. The current conference structure was created to bring together the various professional conferences that were already occurring independently of each other. By bringing all of these conferences under one roof, we can encourage collaboration between disciplines, share resources and costs, and unite our efforts for clean, abundant Iowa water.
The conference partners include Iowa Association of Municipal Utilities, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa Department of Natural Resources, Iowa Flood Center, Iowa Floodplain and Stormwater Management Association, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach, Iowa Storm Water Education Program, Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, Luther College and the U.S. Geological Survey ? Iowa Water Science Center.
