Geosyntec to Present at the 32nd Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water, and Energy

Please join Geosyntec at the 32nd Annual International Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy presented by the Association for Environmental Health and Science Foundation (AEHS) at the University of Massachusetts, in Amherst, Massachusetts on October 17-20, 2016.

The conference attracts 600-800 attendees, including a wide variety of representation from state and federal agencies, military, industry, environmental engineering and consulting, and academia. It has become the preeminent national conference in this important environmental area.

The conference promises to be an exciting opportunity for all those concerned with the challenge of developing creative, cost-effective assessments and solutions that can withstand the demands of regulatory requirements. A strong and diverse technical program is developed each year in concert with a variety of educational, social, and networking opportunities. Live equipment demonstrations augment the exhibition hall, bringing real world application to the technical theory presented in the sessions. Focused day and evening workshops provide attendees with practical information for immediate application.
