Pre-Conference Tour September 9, 2024
Hyatt Regency, Coralville, Iowa

The 18th annual Iowa Water Conference will be held on September 10-11, 2024, at the Hyatt Regency in Coralville, Iowa.

This year, the conference theme is “Life Depends on Water. Water Depends on You.”  Iowa’s source waters are under ever-increasing stress due to climate change, land use demands, and various contaminants. As water professionals and community members, we all play a part in protecting our source waters. Creating a resilient water cycle is critical and relies on a systems approach, recognizing the connection between water, soil, and all living things (including you!).

The Iowa Water Conference and our conference planning partners invite individuals and groups to submit conference abstracts addressing how individuals and communities evaluate and protect Iowa’s precious natural water sources.

Focus areas related to Iowa’s Source Waters:

  • 2024 special focus: Surface Waters
  • 2024 special focus: Groundwater
  • 2024 special focus: Water Reuse
  • 2024 special focus: Water is Life- Health Impacts

The Iowa Water Conference is a unique opportunity for water, climate, urban, agriculture, and natural resource professionals to collaborate and exchange ideas. We welcome submissions from researchers, practitioners, and advocates who actively contribute to advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

Join us in Coralville in September 2024 as we explore Iowa’s source waters
