March 6-8, 2022 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Richmond-Midlothian

It’s time to prepare for the Virginia Water Conference, presented by the Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association. The conference will again be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Richmond-Midlothian in Richmond, Virginia, where we hosted more than 400 participants at our 2020 conference (the last in-person conference we held prior to the pandemic)! We expect strong attendance from Federal, State, and local agency employees, lake owners & operators, consultants, product vendors, etc. Breakout sessions will feature many worthwhile professional papers from every sector of the Virginia water community.

The Virginia Lakes and Watersheds Association (VLWA) annual conference addresses lakes and watersheds, engineering and life sciences, facilities, maintenance, public works, consulting, academic research, and administration. We serve a variety of people all working to improve Virginia’s lakes and watersheds. Our conference is one of the largest state conferences in the US focused on water resources.

IMPORTANT NOTE: In the past, we’ve included 4 presentations per 75 minute technical session. This year we are planning on 3 presentations per 75 minute technical session. This change will provide more time to delve into presentation topics, but will cut our number of presentations by approximately 25%. Please be sure to submit abstracts early to ensure a spot in our technical program!
