All oral presentations, including plenary, technical and Slam talks on Wednesday through Friday will be held at the Hilton in downtown Burlington.

The Wednesday evening poster session and reception will be at the ECHO Aquarium, sponsored in part by NEAEB and the Lake Champlain Basin Program/NEIWPCC.  During the reception, technical posters will be presented by all generations of water resource managers.  Students will compete for an Outstanding Poster Award and $100 prize,with many of the aquatic organisms the Clean Water Act works to protect on hand to watch!
