The South Carolina Water Resources Conference (SCWRC) provides an integrated forum for discussion of water policies, research projects and water management in order to prepare for and meet the growing challenge of providing water resources to sustain and grow South Carolina’s economy, while preserving our natural resources. Each of the four previous conferences brought together over 300 registered attendees, featured over 120 presenters and hosted popular plenary speakers. A wider public audience was reached in 2012 and 2014 with live streaming video of the plenary sessions. This year marks the fifth occurrence of the biennial event, and this October we look forward to recognizing the many contributors, presenters, planning committee members and attendees who have participated in all five conferences!
