Join us for the 16th Annual WRRI Conference, the premier research conference focusing on North Carolina's Water Resource Issues, Solutions, and Opportunities. The North Carolina Water Resources Association (NCWRA) will again be a key partner, with the NCWRA Annual Symposium being an integral element of the conference program. This year's symposium, "Local Governments as Keystone Water Resource Managers", will explore the unique and critical role that local governments play in managing water, and in shaping the future of our water resources in North Carolina. Panelists will present cases for preserving this local management capacity and will compare and contrast local management with other management models.

Submit your abstracts for session themes, and oral and poster presentations based on your own work in water resources. Abstract submission is now open.

Student awards for the NCWRA student poster competition include cash awards for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, and honorable mentions.
