Nonpoint Source as a Theme at the April 2021 NWQMC and Call for Abstracts

We want to share some exciting news: Nonpoint Source is one of the conference themes at the 12th National Monitoring Conference hosted by the National Water Quality Monitoring Council!  “Assessing Nonpoint Source Impacts on Water Quality and Measuring Effectiveness of Best Management Practices”

We wanted to encourage those of you integrating effectiveness monitoring in your nonpoint source work to consider submitting an abstract to share your experience at the April 2021 conference.  Our Nonpoint Source Monitoring Workgroup has sponsored several sessions at the conference and we would encourage you to submit in one of these sessions (or others, of course!). This is an excellent opportunity to share expertise and learn from others in our community and beyond.

The call for abstracts is open through September 24th. Feel free to reach out to any of the session chairs below if you have any questions.  In addition, if you’d like to volunteer as a co-chair, or even just to review abstract submittals for any of the sessions below, please reach out to the session chair to let them know your interests.

Please feel free to share widely with your networks!

Thank you,

Your National Nonpoint Source Monitoring Workgroup
