The Water Management Association of Ohio and Environmental Professionals Network (EPN) are partnering to offer a half day meeting focused on protecting our river systems.

Rivers worldwide continue to be among our most vital resources, providing drinking water, wastewater treatment, habitat, recreation, navigation, beauty, and more.  But too often they have been neglected and abused, or simply taken for-granted.  Many communities are working to protect and restore our rivers and streams.  Learn how to join those efforts.

Participants are welcome to attend only the breakfast and keynote as a guest of EPN for $10; or attend the entire event for $30 through WMAO.  Exhibit space plus two registrations is available for corporate sponsors for $300.  Student attendance is free of charge.
