CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

2017 NGWA Summit

Nashville, TN
December 4 - 7, 2017

The 2017 Summit and Groundwater Week have been 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 premier groundwater 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.
