Technical Committee invites you to submit an abstract for its 2003 Spring
Specialty Conference "Agricultural Hydrology and Water Quality," May 11-14,
2003, Kansas City, Missouri. The deadline for abstract submittal is November

This international conference will provide an excellent opportunity for
water resources professionals to connect and discuss the latest issues

hydrology concerns of regional, national, and international importance. Some
of the specific topics will include research on contamination from
concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs); policy aspects of CFAOs,
TMDLs, and other regulations, pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, and other
organic constituents derived from agricultural operations; microbial
pollutants, pathogens and other emerging water quality issues; BMPs and
TMDLs for agricultural watersheds; the NRCS Nutrient Practice Standard;
manure applicator certification; and the impacts of agricultural-related
contaminants on drinking water supplies or receiving waters.
