We need YOU at the Alabama Water Policy Symposium!

This symposium is one of a series being held statewide to gather stakeholder input into the ongoing efforts to develop a comprehensive water management plan for our state. Each symposium concentrates on a specific water management theme. All Alabama citizens, stakeholders, and elected officials who want their voices heard in the discussion and development of a comprehensive water management plan should attend. Now that the governor has taken leadership and put this process into motion with the formation of his Alabama Water Agencies Working Group (AWAWG), we, as concerned citizens, have a responsibility to play our part.


Online Registration is now closed.
