The Groundwater Resources Association is hosting the second annual Western Groundwater Congress in Sacramento, September 17-19th. There will be three days of technical sessions and workshops through four concurrent tracks on SGMA, water resources, contaminants and special topics such as agriculture and One Water. GRA is pleased to present keynote speaker, Melissa Marshall of Present Your Science, famous through her TED talk “Talk Nerdy to Me” to kickoff the WGC with a presentation on inspiring others through communication of science. Part technical conference (agenda), and part collaboration and networking space, join colleagues in getting “well informed” about the latest groundwater industry trends while enjoying well-being activities, casino night, and social hours featuring local breweries. Workshops include hands on learning about PFAs sampling, a stream gauging field trip, and communication and professional development. Or, get into the weeds with us in our first cannabis and groundwater nexus workshop!
