2014 NGWA Groundwater Summit


Denver, Colorado ē May 4-7, 2014

Groundwater is a resource to be protected. It ignores political boundaries, transports contaminants, floods mine and construction sites, spins communities into an uproar, and canít be found when you need it. Model, explore, characterize, bank, inject, extract, treat, and predict all your subsurface needs with everything groundwater at the 2014 NGWA Groundwater Summit.

NGWA seeks abstracts on any topic related to groundwater science and practice. Submissions may address either broad or niche areas; research projects or case studies; management and policy challenges; and local to transboundary groundwater issues. Biologists, microbiologists, chemists, and toxicologists are encouraged to offer submissions on their research and practice that include any aspect of groundwater.
