48th Annual WMAO Conference and Symposium
November 13 & 14, 2019   *   Crowne Plaza Columbus North

 Keynote: Aaron Wilson, OSU Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center

Submitted abstracts should relate to the theme and fit within one of the following categories:

dam safety * floodplain management * lake management * watershed management * drinking water * ecology * stormwater * education and outreach * fisheries * innovative programs * groundwater * regulation and policy * messaging and data * nonpoint sources * public health and safety * recreation * wastewater

Weather today is weird with extreme events happening more frequently. This affects water systems and how we must manage our precious natural resources. Global climate weirding is a descriptive way to refer to this phenomenon. Water management in Ohio is equally influenced by this worldwide weirding causing hotter, drier, wetter, and windier conditions. Do you have a story to tell related to identifying such problems of water weirding? What about a community response to extreme weather in seeking sustainability? What technology or innovation have you witnessed to improve the protection and restoration of impacted groundwater, wetlands, streams, and lakes? Submit an abstract today to share with other water resource professionals.
