The Symposium highlighted inter-disciplinary water science, engineering, and policy achievements in order to enable water-focused collaborations across the campus and beyond.  The full day program was packed with presentation on topics such as climate adaptation, water management, modeling, and the resources and capabilities available from a variety of agencies.  As part of the discussion, IWR’s Dr. Joe Manous provided an overview of water resources capabilities and activities in which the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is engaged.
