This conference aims to bring together interested parties across multiple disciplines and types of organizations and professions to address the design, integration, and implementation of the programs necessary to better connect land and water planning and policy. The management of land and water are intimately related, yet these connections are not adequately recognized and linked, and the individuals working in these interrelated areas are often disconnected. How we use our land determines the demand and supply for water, impacts water quality and quantity, and impact community viability and aquatic ecosystems. Likewise, water is critical to the sustainability, resilience, and quality of life in our communities.
This specialty conference will bring together practitioners and researchers across the intersecting areas of water management, land use planning, natural resources policy, and related technical and design professions. Sessions will be multi-disciplinary and will focus on understanding the integrated nature of our challenges, goals, and programs. Topics will include:
- land and water aspects of water supply,
- water demand management,
- stormwater management,
- wastewater treatment and disposal,
- community planning and design,
- conservation, and
- integrated “one water” approaches.
With a focus on the relationships among water resources management, utility operations, and land use planning and design, attendees will come away with a new understanding and strengthened personal networking connections across the disciplines and professions critical to water and community sustainability. We look forward to your participation.
