31st Annual Red River Basin Land & Water International Summit Conference
January 14-16, 2014
Ramada Plaza Suites, Fargo, ND
Keynote Speaker - Robert Glennon
America’s self-inflicted water crisis is coming. Throughout the Unites States, even in places that are not particularly dry or hot, communities, farmers and factories are struggling to find water, and even running out altogether. Our water woes will get worse before they get better because we are slow to change out ways, and because water is the overlooked resource. This presentation will illustrate the urgency of this problem and the need for action on multiple fronts to solve it.
Registration: $225 includes materials, attendance to all plenary and special sessions, entry to exhibits, 2 breakfasts, Tuesday social/reception, 2 lunches, Wednesday banquet and refreshment breaks.
To register and form more information, see the Red River Basin Commission website.
Share with us a Success Story. Stories will be recognized and included in a booklet that will be distributed to conference attendees, and some of the stories will be selected to be presented during the “Lightning Talks” session. Click here for more information.
CWRA Manitoba Workshop: Flood Forecasting- Fact vs. Fiction?
Friday, January 31, 2014 8:20 AM - 5:00 PM
Inn at the Forks, 75 Forks Market Road
Flood forecasting is one of the most poorly understood disciplines in the fields of hydrology and water management. The Manitoba CWRA Branch will host a one-day workshop where leading experts from a variety of fields will provide in-depth technical presentations to help demystify some of the many complexities surrounding the physical processes responsible for extreme runoff events and to describe past forecasting methodologies. More importantly, this workshop will provide a context for contemporary forecasting models and shed light on reasonable limits of confidence and reliability that can be expected from them. Time for questions and group discussion will be provided following each presenter, and a panel of experts will participate in an interactive discussion to conclude the workshop.
Fees: CWRA Members: $150, CWRA Non-members: $180, Students: $80
