Building a clean water future in northeast Nebraska is the theme for the Nebraska Water Center’s annual conference, Oct. 9-10 at the Divots Conference Center in Norfolk.
“Our center has a long tradition of working within our state on water quality issues. What’s different about this year’s conference is the specific focus on northeast Nebraska and locally based solutions to their challenges,” said Chittaranjan Ray, director of the Nebraska Water Center, part of the Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska.
The conference is based around three pillars – water quality and public health, innovative solutions to current problems and community engagement. More than 40 speakers will share what they are doing to ensure a clean water future.
