2011 World Environmental and Water Resources Congress

Event Date: 
May 22, 2011 to May 26, 2011

The World Environmental & Water Resources Congress is an important opportunity for professionals in the environmental and water fields to convene and focus on topics of the day. This year's technical program focuses on “Bearing Knowledge for Sustainability.” It is important that the environmental and engineering community integrate sustainability, in dealing with today’s issues whether they be technical, economic, social, environmental or political. To that end a number of symposia are being offered including:

  • Arid Lands Symposium

  • Climate Change Symposium

  • Sustainability Symposium

  • 6th World Water Forum Symposium: North American Regional Event

The congress will also feature our traditional technical tracks such as urban water resources, dam safety, watershed management, systems engineering, water and wastewater engineering, international issues and projects, and a strong local program focused on southwest environmental water issues such as the restoration of the Salton Sea, the Bay Delta Program, and state of the art infrastructure projects.

  • Several Golf Courses and Tennis Courts

  • Palm Springs Aerial Tramway (Elevation 8,516 feet)

  • Salton Sea Recreation Area
