Water Resources Committee

The water resources industry is vastly diverse involving drinking water, flood control, conservation, wastewater treatment, stormwater management, treatment, and reuse. Limited resources and expanding regulatory requirements have created an increasingly complex and challenging task for those managing water.

The goals of the Water Resources Committee are:

  1. To provide a forum for water resources professionals, bringing experts together to share knowledge and ideas on how best to address NC water resource challenges.

  3. To assist in developing the agenda and identifying speakers for the annual Confluence Conference.
  4. To provide rewarding leadership opportunities to water resources professionals.

Topics of interest to the committee include, but are certainly not limited to:

  • water quality
