ISMAR10: 10th International Symposium on Managed Aquifer Recharge

Located in an area with pressing water needs, scarce surface water and a diversity of landscapes, lithologies, technologies, and cultures, ISMAR10 is held under the joint auspices of the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH), American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO). ISMAR10 will provide attendees with incredible perspectives, new insights, and concentrated learning opportunities. This interactive conference is devoted entirely to the art of managing aquifer recharge£®MAR£© and it will include workshops, technical sessions, poster presentations, and a field trip to an active aquifer storage and recovery site.

Top reasons to attend

Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) is growing rapidly around the world as it addresses the need to efficiently secure water supplies in the face of population growth and climate change.New technical and policy innovations involving water recycling, desalination, storm water harvesting, natural treatment, design, monitoring and control structures and water banking are cutting costs, increasing resiliency of supplies and improving water quality.Research has never been stronger to help ensure that MAR is effective and safe. ISMAR has been held successfully for 9 series, and this is the first time that will be held in a Mediterranean site, making ISMAR10 unique and highly relevant to MENA and Center-South American countries.

A number of important organizations are endorsing and participating in ISMAR10 and BSMAR15 including CONAGUA, IAH, AHS, GRA, UNESCO, ASCE.We encourage you to attend and experience ISMAR10 and Madrid culture. Please attend this important Symposium and connect with your peers from around the world, be surprised by MAR technological advances, present your research and projects and acquire new knowledge to revolutionize your local water management agenda.
