University of the District of Columbia to Host April 2014 Water Symposium
The National Capital Region Water Resources Symposium will be hosted at the University of the District of Columbia’s Van Ness campus on Friday, April 4, 2014. The National Capital Region (NCR), encompassing the District of Columbia, and parts of Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia, has unique and challenging opportunities for sustainable management of water resources and water infrastructures. The region is the gateway to the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the U.S; provides water for six million people; but also hosts many agencies which consider water resources at a national or international scale. This one-day symposium at the University of the District of Columbia will bring together experts from governmental agencies, academia, the private sector, and non-profits to present and discuss challenges and opportunities for sustainable management of water resources and infrastructure in the region, as well as nationally, and internationally.
