GSI's Larry Eaton and Jason Melady are headed to ISMAR10—the 10th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge in Madrid, Spain, May 20-24, 2019.
Larry will be co-chairing a session about assessing the environmental impacts and risks of managed aquifer recharge (MAR). Session speakers will be discussing MAR projects in Chile, India, Australia, Brazil, Spain, and China. GSI was one of the few U.S.-based groundwater consulting firms invited to participate.
The symposium, held biennially at different locations around the world, brings together global experts in aquifer recharge. This year's conference will focus on the role of MAR in integrated water resources management, climate change adaption, reclaimed water reuse, and more. A key theme of the conference will be how MAR can be used to address the global water crisis, providing a way to manage water shortage, water security issues, water quality decline, falling water tables, and groundwater-dependent ecosystems.
