Past Water Research Symposia

2015GWCRS

Every year since 2003 the Water Center has hosted a Water Research Symposium to bring together researchers in the water field to share their knowledge. In 2007 the Water Center began holding its meetings in conjunction with the Oklahoma Water Resources Board's (OWRB's) Oklahoma Governor's Water Conference each fall. This partnership has been beneficial to the OWRB, the Water Center, and meeting participants who are able to interact with a more diverse audience.
