Environmental Management of Resource Extraction in Colorado: Minerals, Fossil Fuels, and Water

2018 FALL CONFERENCE CALL FOR ABSTRACTS

Environmental Management of Colorado Water Resources in the Agriculture, Mining, Oil & Gas, Recreation/Tourism Sectors

Thursday, October 4th, 8am – 5pm, Sports Authority Field at Mile High

CONFERENCE OVERVIEW: Colorado’s economy is one of the best in the nation due to our unique position as a headwaters state, which drives growth in water-dependent market sectors such as agriculture, mining, oil and gas, and recreation/tourism. Each of these sectors depends on a plentiful supply of good-quality water for beneficial use and growth, and each sector produces used water that must be managed in order not to impact downstream users. With a backdrop of climate change, population growth, and multiple overlapping regulatory programs, environmental professionals are constantly faced with an evolving and challenging environment in which to ensure water resources are managed responsibly. This conference will explore similarities and differences in how these market sectors manage water supply, water use, water treatment, and water disposal. Keynote Speakers to be announced soon!

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS: We seek thought-provoking presenters that constructively and critically examine the status quo, describe current or anticipated future challenges, provide insight on the key(s) to success, and stimulate discussion on how environmental professionals can anticipate, react, and rise up to the challenges of responsible management of water resources in the 21st century and beyond.  Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
