Registration now open for 2018 NH Water & Watershed Conference

February 12, 2018

The 11th New Hampshire Water & Watershed Conference (NHWWC) will be held March 23, 2018 at Plymouth State University.

Register now as space is limited!

The NHWWC is a key annual event for sharing water resource information. For 2018, the event will focus on regional environmental stresses and how we are adapting to new information, emerging issues, and current events affecting water quality and water supply.

The conference will have sessions and posters that connect information and research to the practice of adaptive management. Sessions will be organized around a variety of water resource topics, such as the use of water data, emerging contaminants, water supply issues, nonpoint source pollution, stormwater, and low impact design. The conference agenda includes sessions and posters that connect information and research to the practice of adaptive management. 

The plenary speaker will be Wil Wollheim, Associate Professor in the Department of Natural Resources at the University of New Hampshire and co-PI on the NH EPSCoR Ecosystems & Society project, who will present a talk entitled An Aquatic Symphony: The Ongoing Revolution in in situ Water Quality Sensing and What It Means for Watershed Science and Resource Management.

Other NH EPSCoR researchers presenting include:

  • Dave Simon, Anne Lightbody, and Shan Zuidema - Quantifying the Impact of Dams on Floods, Droughts, and Nutrient Flux in the Lamprey River Watershed
  • Iman Hosseini-Shakib - Future Risk of Dams in New England Under Land Use & Climate Change
  • Shannon Rogers - Examining Methods of Ecosystem Services Valuation to Better Inform Policy: Lessons from the Great Bay Estuary Watershed
