Inspired by last year’s symposium on Wetland Resilience in North Carolina, Duke University’s Student Association of Wetland Scientists (SAWS) and Duke Water Network (DWN) have organized a water symposium focused on the holistic management of surface water and groundwater resources in the Southern United States. Our keynote speaker, James Dalton, SES, serves as Director of Civil Works for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We are excited to have him join us here in North Carolina, where he earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees at North Carolina A&T and North Carolina State University. We are also excited to host a diverse line-up of speakers from academia, state and federal government, private sector, and non-profit backgrounds who will be covering topics in surface water and groundwater management throughout individual talks and panel discussions. We hope this symposium will provide an opportunity for students, faculty, and professionals to network and learn more about current issues in integrated water management throughout the South.
