From Dust Bowl to Mud Bowl conference scheduled for September
“From Dust Bowl to Mud Bowl: Sedimentation, Conservation Measures and the Future of Reservoirs,” a conference sponsored by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Cooperative State Research, Education, and Extension Service, Kansas State University, and the Soil and Water Conservation Society, is scheduled for Sep. 14-16, 2009, in Kansas City, Mo.
The conference seeks to expand opportunities for multi-state interdisciplinary collaboration regarding conservation practices and the sustainability of reservoirs, examine current scientific research and technological issues related to sediment loading, and formulate recommendations regarding strategies to address sedimentation in reservoirs.
The Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) is part of the conference planning committee and TWRI Acting Director Dr. B.L. Harris will be leading a conference session on “Consequences of Nutrient Loading and Sedimentation on Eutrophication.”
