WATERCON2013 is where water professionals from all over the state gather to present the latest research and technologies for improving water quality, wastewater treatment, and public health.

New this year,  we will host a career fair at WATERCON 2013 for undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and certification program trainees. This event will provide job placement, networking, and mentoring opportunities for students pursuing fields of study related to the water industry, such as chemistry, biology, civil and environmental engineering, environmental science and policy, public health, water system operations, and utility management.
NO CHARGE - There is no charge for students to attend the 2 hour career fair.   If you would like to stay for the entire day, and experience the technical sessions, exhibit hall and social events, you can submit a poster for the poster session and gain free registration with your poster submission.  Also if you would like to simply register for the day, that is an option below.  Poster session begins at 9am and judging will be at 11am, also on Tuesday, March 19, 2013.

If  you are a full time student and involved extensively in water or wastewater topics and are unable to present a poster and need assistance to attend WATERCON,  email for further assistance and details.
