Groundwater conference scheduled for October

The Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), in conjunction with Texas A&M University’s Water Degree Program will host the third annual Groundwater 101 Conference on Oct. 13-14, at the College Station Conference Center. This year’s conference will be combined with the Aquifers of the Upper Coastal Plains Conference, part of a series of conferences by TWDB’s Groundwater Division that will eventually cover all major and most minor aquifers in the state.

The conference will include topics such as the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, groundwater law, groundwater modeling, drought management planning, and water level monitoring techniques. The course is designed primarily for groundwater conservation district staff and members of their boards of directors, but all interested individuals are welcome to attend.

Registration is available here and the registration fee is $50. For more information, contact Brenner Brown at
