The Environmental and Water Resources Institute (EWRI) Austin Chapter will hold its 13th annual continuing education workshop June 15. With the theme of The Confluence of Water Resources Disciplines, this year’s event will focus on multidiscipline design for water resources projects. Local and national landscape architects, ecologists, civil engineers, and other scientists will present on topics ranging from aquifer protection to LID design to the latest research in the water resources field.

The workshop is at the UT Austin Commons Learning Center on the J.J. Pickle Research Campus. New this year, the workshop will feature a live webinar option at a discounted rate, allowing viewers worldwide to watch the presentations and participate in the Q&A session. Viewers can log in and out of the webinar as needed, select the presentations they’re interested in, and participate as their schedules allow. All water resources professionals are encouraged to attend and take advantage of this opportunity to share ideas, learn from one another’s disciplines and continue to collaborate to create better solutions. Register and learn more at the Austin Chapter website.

The objective of the Chapter is the advancement of the science and profession of engineering in a manner consistent with the purpose of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) by providing local workshops and training to members. The annual continuing education workshop is the Chapter’s largest event and typically draws a large audience from across Central Texas.
