Watershed Confernce Logo
Water runs through the lives of all Arkansans, who have always taken pride in the many lakes, rivers and streams throughout our state. Growing industry and population make it increasingly important to ensure that our waterways are clean and safe. Because of our shared appreciation and responsibility for clean water, the theme for ADEQ’s 2014 Watershed Conference is “Connecting Communities, Protecting Watersheds.”

To promote connection, representatives of watershed groups and other entities that are developing management plans will have the opportunity to report their success stories and specific issues.

The action begins Wednesday, Nov. 19, at the Best Western Inn of the Ozarks in Eureka Springs, with pre-conference workshops and continues Thursday and Friday with the keynote address, resource fair and poster contest, the awards luncheon, and sessions on urban systems, education, and volunteer recruitment and retention.

A special highlight will be Thursday night’s social hour and concert by Northwest Arkansas’s celebrated folk duo Still on the Hill, who will present a musical history of one of our state’s largest drinking water reservoirs.

We’ll be posting more conference details in the days to come. Those interested in receiving e-mail alerts can subscribe to our watershed listserv.
