The WRRI Conference Experience

WRRI’s annual conference brings together all sectors and all disciplines working in water resources across North Carolina. Here you’ll find water utilities, students, consultants, academics, nonprofits, state agency staff, among many others, working across diverse fields such as stream restoration, water supply planning, stormwater management, hydrology, community engagement and many more!

We feature presentations on the latest research and on-the-ground practices and implementation, virtual networking opportunities, and interactive sessions to learn new skills and solve problems, student engagement opportunities such as mentoring, exhibitors and highlights such as art, music and dynamic keynote speakers who remind us of the value of the work we do to study, protect and manage water resources.
