Support the Conference

We all value water. Whether for drinking, recreation or business, our prosperity and quality of life depends on it. North Carolina’s Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) works to protect our state’s water resources. We educate decision makers and train the next generation of water consumers, water scientists, and water managers. With a modest budget and a small staff, we leverage a lot to provide a robust research and training program.

“It is the primary venue to interact with and hear from scientists, engineers, managers and academia in the water-resources arena in North Carolina.” – 2018 Conference Participant
