Description/Notes: 

The symposium will explore the management, policy, socio-economic challenges, research and outreach needs, and opportunities in sustaining Maryland's water supply for future generations. The symposium will revisit the Wolman Report and Recommendations developed after Maryland's last severe drought in the early 2000s to highlight what's been accomplished, what remains to be done, and new challenges that have emerged since. The symposium will also cover the status of Maryland's Coastal Plain aquifers, overviews of water supply and management in the Susquehanna and Potomac River basins, Maryland's water supply regulatory framework and socio-economic context. Break out discussions will be facilitated in the afternoon to identify potential management, policy, socio-economic solutions, and research and outreach needs as they relate to future sustainability of water resources in Maryland.
