According to organizers, the event will bring together professionals and academics to facilitate an open dialogue on topics that shape water policy at federal and state levels of government.

Discussions will cover water quality and conservation, as well as how new policies, regulations and laws may affect local water resources.

The deadline for registration is June 1. On-site registration will be available for participants and guests but lunches will not be included with on-site registration. Information on costs and registration is available online.
