This year, Sweet Water is utilizing the US Water Alliance’s One Water Approach and its six “arenas of action” to guide the conference program. To learn more about the One Water Approach, you can view the graphic below or visit the One Water Roadmap web site at http://uswateralliance.org/one-water/roadmap.
Presenter proposals that address more than one of these six areas will be given special consideration. Presentation topics include, but are not limited to:
- Emerging Technologies- Community Engagement- Policy and Regulation- Economic Development- Data Use- Inspirational Projects and Practices
LENGTH OF PRESENTATIONWe anticipate scheduling sessions that are either 60 minutes or 90 minutes in length. As in past years, it is possible that presentations on similar topics may be combined into one session. In the spirit of this year's conference theme, we encourage group or panel presentations that incorporate multiple viewpoints, approaches, or disciplines.
