Mark your calendars for EWRI's Watershed Management Conference, August 5 - 7, 2015. The Power of the Watershed will be heading to the "Apple Capital of the World," Wenatchee, Washington, and offering an abundance of short courses, technical sessions, and technical tours.

Call for Papers

This will be the 50 year anniversary of this multidisciplinary conference, which has been held at five year intervals since 1965. The rich history of this conference has brought together engineers, hydrologists, soil scientists, foresters, environmentalists and a variety of other disciplines for quality technical presentations and great networking opportunities.

Please submit your abstract for a paper or poster for the Conference program. We are especially seeking papers that present and discuss the POWER of the Watershed to restore healthy lifestyles, provide quality living, support vibrant economies and offer sanctuary when needed. Additional topics of particular interest may include - water resources and reservoir management, forestry, soil science, agricultural and biological engineering and fisheries.
This Conference offers the opportunity to meet in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains on the banks of the Columbia River and explore not only watershed management, on both the micro and macro scale, but also fish passage issues and operations management of one of the largest hydro power systems in the world.
