Program-at-Glance Now Available - view session topics, field trips, and more. Praised by attendees year-after-year, AWRA's Annual Conference is an immersive experience, providing attendees with innovative, practical, and applied water resource management solutions, management techniques, and current research. Attendees will hear:
- lessons learned from the implementation of multidisciplinary projects,
- best practices discovered in the design and application of water resource management,
- implications of water policy decisions, and
- research into current and emerging issues.
Hosted by AWRA's Utah State Section, the conference also promises to provide multiple opportunities to explore and appreciate the unique water resource aspects of this beautiful city and state.
Workshop 1: Using Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithms to Support Water Resources Planning:
Water utilities undertaking long term planning must consider conflicting performance goals, e.g. trying to reliably meet growing demands, maintaining aging infrastructure, while avoiding costly new infrastructure and minimizing harm to the environment. Note: This workshop is limited to 12 attendees.
Workshop 2: That's So Water Meta!:
All too often, decision-makers are unable to answer fundamental questions about our water systems in a timely way. Even basic questions like: How much water is there? What is its quality? How is it used (i.e., withdrawn, consumed or returned for reuse)? The data needed to answer these questions often exist. However, they are scattered across multiple platforms at different organizations (both government and non-governmental) with different standards, so that it is difficult to reuse much of the beyond the primary purpose for which they were collected. This workshop will present options for sharing data from, and we will practice creating and applying metadata to maximize the potential value of shared data and ensure data are findable, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR).
