It is with great excitement that we announce the 5th annual Water and Environment Student Talks (WEST), a water conference for students and young professionals in the Pacific Northwest.
WEST CASCADES: Water in Cycles will stimulate discussions on the various stages that water goes through as we use it and will include topics like water reclamation and resource recovery from water and wastewater.
