The Binational Summit on Transboundary Groundwater at the US-Mexico Border is being organized by the International Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico (IBWC), which will take place April 10-11, 2019 in El Paso, Texas at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Desalination Plant, TecH2O Conference Center.
The purpose of the Summit is to bring together US and Mexican federal, state, and local agencies, as well as non-governmental organizations and the academic community to share information and promote U.S. and Mexico cooperation on groundwater resource related issues. The regional, transboundary groundwater systems support many local communities, and the collection and sharing of information are of great importance to the management of groundwater and to its sustainable use. This forum hopes to promote the state of knowledge about this system and learn from other geographic regions that face similar needs.
The Summit builds on the recent efforts of the IBWC and the recommendations developed at the 2012 Summit that focused on Border Water Resources: Past, Present, and Future.
Speakers from the U.S. and Mexican border region will be sharing their perspectives and research on this important topic. Confirmed speakers include representatives from the U.S. Geological Survey, National Water Commission- Mexico, University of California-Davis, University of Arizona Water Resources Research Center, Institute of Water Technology- Mexico, New Mexico Water Resources Research Institute, University of Sonora, Texas Alliance of Groundwater Districts, and Texas A&M AgriLife Research Center.
