2014 Mississippi Water Resources Conference
Mississippi is fortunate to currently have plentiful supplies of clean water. However, potential problems loom on the horizon. Drought conditions continue to plague parts of the Southeast, stretching from Texas to Georgia. Parts of the Mississippi Delta were inundated by the Flood of 2011, while at the same time groundwater supplies experience declines. The Mississippi Water Resources Conference provides a forum for the water resources community to discuss these complex water issues facing our state, region, and nation. This year's conference is organized around four tracks—Water Quality, Water Quantity, Climate, and Sustainability. Research findings and applications from state and federal agencies, as well as colleges and universities, will be shared with conference attendees. Success stories will be highlighted.
Scheduled for April 1-2 in Jackson, MS, this year's conference promises to be an exciting event. This will be the water conference you will not want to miss, with exciting presentations and keynote speakers, as well as a panel forum comprised of representatives from several federal and state agencies. Poster sessions will showcase student work, and exhibitors from the private and public sectors will be in attendance.
The conference will be held at the Jackson Hilton, in Jackson MS. Reservations may be made by phoning 1-601-957-2800. Please make your reservations by March 1, 2014 to receive the group rate of $114.00 per night. Mention group code MWRRI to receive the special group rate.
