September 7, 2007

UNL researchers and students will present their latest water-related research and programming in the areas of water science, economics and law on Friday, Oct. 12, at Hardin Hall on UNL's East Campus.

"This will be a fast-paced, day-long event with dozens of oral and poster presentations by faculty researchers and students. Many of the presentations focus on Nebraska-based research and programming," said Lorrie Benson, senior program manager for UNL's Water Resources Research Initiative.

"The water colloquium is a great way to learn about an extensive body of university water-related research and programming in a short amount of time," said UNL Water Center director and WRRI leader Kyle Hoagland. The day concludes with an optional public tour of the newly refurbished UNL Water Sciences Laboratory, which is considered one of the top three water analytical laboratories in the United States.

More information on the colloquium and laboratory tour, including an agenda and registration information, are online at http://watercenter.unl.edu. Registration deadline is Sept. 28 and registration is free for students and $15 for all others. The laboratory tour is free and open to the public.
