BGNDRF's 2nd Annual Water Innovation and Networking Workshop

About this Event

The goal of the WIN Workshop is to provide clients of the Bureau of Reclamation's Brackish Groundwater National Desalination Research Facility (BGNDRF)the opportunity to share their work with a broader audience in a rich environment for networking with potential customers, investors, partners, and other interested parties. Attendees will have the opportunity to get a first-hand look at BGNDRF and what the facility has to offer.

This year, in addition to presentations by organizations with projects at BGNDRF, attendees will hear speakers from BGNDRF, the Bureau of Reclamation, the Department of Energy, Antelope Water Management, and Global Water Intelligence.
