52nd Annual WMAO Conference

Water: Our Most Valuable Resource
November 7 & 8, 2023

We frequently forget the embarrassment of riches that are Ohio’s water resources. On our north, east and south we are bounded by Lake Erie and the Ohio River - transportation routes, places for recreation, and the source of drinking water for millions. Most major tributaries to the waters are entirely within our state, avoiding costly conflicts with our neighbors over who has control of these resources. We have extensive, productive, and well understood aquifer systems. Throughout Ohio’s history access to these resources has attracted industry to our state. Programs like H2Ohio and investment in our water infrastructure increases the value of our water resources. Although the recent events have impacted our water resources, we use the knowledge gained to protect this most valuable resource.

Join us for this two-day conference of plenary sessions, contributed papers, poster presentations, and networking events.
