LINCOLN, NE (April 22, 2013) – The Groundwater Foundation is seeking abstracts from potential presenters and exhibitors for its 2013 national conference, to be held October 15-17, 2013 at the Mission Inn Resort near Orlando, Florida. The theme of the conference will be “Tools for Groundwater Sustainability: Working Together to Meet the Challenges” and will focus on the resources, tools, and practices which lead to groundwater sustainability.

The impacts of our growing population, societal needs, and climate variations all render the need for increased efforts to protect and conserve our groundwater resources. The 2013 conference promises to be exciting with field trips and tours that showcase innovative solutions and programs that have been developed and implemented locally as well as the area’s unique geologic features. Presentations should focus on the knowledge, technology, and practices that can assist communities in local groundwater sustainability.

Potential presenters should submit a 250-word abstract to The Groundwater Foundation by May 1, 2013. Presentation topics may include, but are not limited to community involvement/participation in water issues; climate change and extreme weather’s impacts on groundwater (i.e. drought, floods, etc.); population growth/urban sprawl impacts; public education challenges and solutions; groundwater sustainability strategies; social, economic, and environmental interactions; funding for groundwater sustainability; conjunctive use (engineered solutions, planned or artificial); challenges and solutions to sustainable groundwater management; emerging issues (i.e. fracking, nanotechnology, flood capture and recharge, energy/water nexus, carbon sequestration, etc.); wellhead protection’s role in groundwater sustainability; groundwater/surface water interactions; and agriculture and water quality.
