NATIONAL MONITORING CONFERENCE
The National Water Quality Monitoring Council (NWQMC or "Council") in partnership with NALMS will host its 9th National Monitoring Conference – Working Together for Clean Water on April 28 – May 2, 2014.
This conference will focus on the many facets of water quality and quantity monitoring for improved understanding, protection, and restoration of our natural resources and communities. It is a centerpiece forum that generally attracts 800 - 1,000 water practitioners from all backgrounds, including federal, state, local, tribal, volunteer, academic, private, and other water stakeholders. Attendees exchange information about water monitoring, assessment, research, protection, restoration, and management; learn about new findings on the quality of the Nation's streams and rivers, groundwater, estuaries, lakes and wetlands; and develop new skills and professional networks. The conference includes presentations, panels, poster sessions, exhibits, hands-on interactive workshops, field trips and Fluid 5K run, as well as time for after-hours meetings and networking.
