International Groundwater Conference to Examine Nitrate Contamination, Its Prevention and Cleanup
Join us June 28-30 for the conference in San Francisco
Nitrate in groundwater is one of the most pressing contamination issues in agricultural areas around the world, from California’s Central Valley to Denmark and New Zealand. Nitrate pollution threatens both people and the environment, and preventing it from seeping into aquifers and removing it from groundwater is one of the top water quality issues around the globe.
Learn all about the challenge of nitrate in groundwater from researchers, scientists, water managers and others at the upcoming Toward Sustainable Groundwater in Agriculture: 2nd International Conference Linking Science and Policy.
The conference will run from June 28-30 at the Hyatt Regency at the San Francisco Airport in Burlingame, and is organized by the Water Education Foundation and the UC Davis Robert M. Hagan Endowed Chair. Register today!
Nitrate presentations will include:
- An overview of historical groundwater contamination around he world
- Lessons-learned and management success stories from Denmark and the Netherlands
- Sacramento Valley rice growers’ approach to groundwater quality management
- Insights from New Zealand’s policy experience with managing the impacts of agricultural non-point sources
- Groundwater remediation for nitrate contamination in public supply wells: Challenge of the nonpoint source

- irrigation and sustainability
- emerging contaminants
- climate change
- environmental justice
- groundwater recharge
