The 3rd UF Water Institute Symposium

The 3rd UF Water Institute Symposium once again provided two exciting days of interaction, networking and learning for diverse participants from multiple perspectives (scientists, engineers, academics, government and non-governmental organizations, policy makers, water managers, industry and utility representatives, lawyers, students and the public). This Water Institute flagship event unites a shared interest in sustaining our water resources for the future.   The 2012 Water Institute Symposium gathered presenters from around the country to focus on issues surrounding “Nutrient Dynamics, Policy and Management in Watersheds.”  Over 150 contributed oral and poster presentations and several panel discussions addressed new research, education, policy and technology developments in six interdisciplinary areas:
  • Understanding natural, anthropogenic and legacy sources of nutrients
  • Nutrient dynamics and enrichment impacts in aquatic ecosystems
  • Efficacy of nutrient source control strategies
  • Innovative biological, physical and chemical nutrient reduction and recovery technologies
  • Social, behavioral, and economic aspects of nutrient management
  • Governance approaches to nutrient management
Symposium participants comment:

“Content exceeded my expectations”

“I enjoyed ….the opportunity to interact with people from the academic, policy, management and private sectors.”

“The symposium...not only focused on current Florida nutrient management issues but also from areas across the U.S. I liked that case studies and comparisons were made. The diversity of attendees was also beneficial and provides a very nice, interdisciplinary look at nutrient issues and how we can move forward in learning about problems and in working towards solutions.”

I appreciated …“Access to a broad range of experts in the topic…. and that there was ample time between sessions to network with others”
