General Information

The Groundwater Security Planning Workshop will be held on The University of Alabama campus October 24-26, 2022. This workshop will provide a scientific forum for researchers, academics, consultants, and industry professionals to discuss and develop novel ideas for solving groundwater and other water security problems that are relevant to EPSCOR states. The workshop will cover a variety of water security management topics to address our need to access an adequate amount of groundwater to meet basic human needs, support the ecosystem services by maintaining baseflow in streams and rivers, and support the economic activities (e.g., agriculture, industry, and tourism) of the region.  We will also explore novel technology and policy solutions for managing both water quality and quantity problems (e.g., treatment technologies, reverse osmosis, and managed aquifer recharge).
