VLWA Abstract Submission

The VLWA welcomes abstract submissions for our upcoming conference. The Virginia Water Conference addresses issues on lakes and watersheds, engineering and life sciences, and academic research. Presentations are selected based on abstract summaries of up to two pages.

If you would like to present your work to an interesting mixture of people, here is the opportunity. Working with the Virginia Floodplain Management Association (VFMA), our Association addresses lakes and watersheds, engineering and life sciences, facilities, maintenance, public works, consulting, academic research, and administration. We serve a challenging variety of people all working to improve Virginia’s lakes and watersheds.

Presentations are selected based on abstract summaries of up to one (1) page which will be published in the conference proceedings. Appropriate topics include research and practical applications in storm water management, watershed management, floodplain management, hydrology, hydraulics, limnology, water quality, biology/ecology, total maximum daily loads, dam safety, dam and lake maintenance, and related water subjects. Presentations are logically grouped in the program. Upon acceptance, we will contact you as to your place on the schedule.

This year, we are advancing the deadline for abstract submission to finalize the program earlier and give opportunities to a wider audience for participation. We will make every effort to keep to the following schedule:
