Meet SCS professionals at the 2017 Conference and 26th Annual Meeting of the Groundwater Resources Association of California (GRA), in Los Angeles, CA. This year’s conference will explore how Groundwater Sustainability Agencies (GSAs) identify, organize and use data, and work through complex and competing land use plans and water demands, and financial and legal requirements to manage the groundwater in California sustainably. The conference will highlight innovative approaches and technologies for remediation of groundwater contamination, and ongoing and emerging water quality issues. Topics will include innovative methods for site characterization; advances in site remediation, including green and sustainable remediation practices; and contaminant trends and site-cleanup objectives. The development and use of advanced tools for assessing and monitoring complex sites, remediation techniques and analyses will be discussed. Information from the academic, regulatory, and environmental consulting communities will be presented on new technologies, applications and policies affecting restoration and management of sites with groundwater quality impacts.
GRA’s 2017 Conference and 26th Annual Meeting will provide policy makers, practitioners, researchers, and educators the opportunity to learn about current policies, regulations and technical challenges affecting the protection, use and management of groundwater in California. Attendees will learn from real world successful case studies on groundwater management, replenishment and recharge, and groundwater protection and remediation, and will walk away with concepts and solutions that can be applied to their local projects and groundwater management issues.
The two-day conference will feature a plenary session, two to three concurrent technical sessions, lunch presentations, GRA’s 2017 Northern and Southern California David Keith Todd Lecturers, the Collegiate Colloquium, panel(s) of industry leaders, GRA President’s Reception, exhibit hall, and poster presentations.
