In celebration of National Drinking Water Week, Penn State Extension along with numerous other sponsors invite you to attend the 2017 Pennsylvania Groundwater Symposium at the Ramada Inn Conference Center in State College, PA on May 3, 2017 

The Symposium theme, Groundwater and Drinking Water: Making the Connection, will provide a forum for researchers, students, professionals and educators working in the groundwater field to exchange information and promote protection of groundwater resources throughout the state.

The day-long symposium will begin at 8:30 AM with opening remarks and a plenary session of presentations on emerging groundwater topics.  Morning and afternoon concurrent sessions will also be provided from submitted abstracts.  A buffet lunch will be provided for all attendees and the Symposium will close with another plenary session of speakers. 

A nominal registration fee of $40 for the symposium is made possible thanks to generous funding support from the Master Well Owner Network, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the Pennsylvania Ground Water Association and the Penn State Water Resources Research Center.  Your registration fee pays for morning and afternoon break food and a buffet lunch. Discounted registration is also available for certified Penn State Master Well Owner volunteers.  Registration is limited to the first 250 registrants and the Symposium has filled to capacity the last two years so register early to guarantee your spot! There will be no walk-in registration on the day of the Symposium.
