The 2017 NGWA Groundwater Summit is being designed to provide both educational and networking experiences to all who work in the groundwater industry. Every opportunity to maximize the foundations of groundwater science with water supply, resource protection, and remediation will be applied to this event. There will indeed be something for everyone involved in groundwater at some point during this week. We learn best from each other and thus we invite you to share your research, technology transfer, unique applications, and experience in one of a variety of options in Nashville.
Conference sessions — offered on Monday and Tuesday, each selected abstract with a session will be allocated 20 minutes for a platform presentation.
Extended learning sessions — offered on Tuesday afternoon, these offerings will be structured to provide in-depth information about one specific top and will be 75 to 90 minutes in length.
Posters — presented on Monday following the conference sessions.
Topic areas in which submissions are being sought for the above three types of offerings include, but are not limited to:
- Availability and sustainability
- Broad implications of emerging contaminants to water policy
- Emerging contaminants
- Groundwater and energy
- Groundwater and integrated water management
- Groundwater modeling
- Groundwater monitoring
- Groundwater remediation, including combined remedies
- Integrating science into the consulting business
- Karst hydrology
- Managed aquifer recharge
- Mississippi Alluvial Plain groundwater project
- Surface water/groundwater Interaction
- Water quality and treatment
- Well design and life cycle
- And anything else groundwater.
Field trips — tentatively planned for Friday, these “free-standing” field trips should pertain to groundwater research or application, or water supply in some manner. Ideally the site should be within one-hour’s drive of Music City Center and the activity planned to last four to six hours.
