2013 Conference, “Water and Energy” recap »

Message from the President

Todd Myse
Research Hydrogeologist, MBMG

As a result of moving to Montana in 2010, I am still rather new to Montana’s “water scene”. I have learned a great deal and continue to learn. Researching Montana’s groundwater andIMG_20150714_132934220_HDR-01 surface-water interactions and resources, has shown me how past climatic trends may affect current resources. For this year’s conference, we hope to have lively discussions on how those past trends may affect our water resources – currently and into the future.

Please join us this year as we focus on “Water Quality & Quantity in a Changing Climate.” Our Annual MT AWRA Conference will convene at Fairmont Hot Springs, MT on October 12-14, 2016. As always, we will have a smorgasbord of stimulating speakers and posters along with our social hour and banquet. And, once again, our extremely competitive Hydrophile 3-mile run/walk (just kidding! It is all for fun). We look forward to seeing you in Fairmont!
