Senator Richard Shelby to Speak at the 2016 Water Policy Summit

Senator Richard Shelby will speak at The University of Alabama’s 2016 Water Policy Summit Friday, Apr. 8 at 8:00 a.m.

“I look forward to participating in the inaugural Water Policy Summit to discuss the importance of ongoing research efforts at the National Water Center,” said Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.). “The National Water Center at The University of Alabama allows our nation to better predict and manage various water-related issues while fostering nationwide collaboration on water matters. I look forward to once again visiting this state-of-the-art facility and learning more about the critical work taking place in Tuscaloosa.”

The 2016 Water Policy Summit was created in response to changing water management policies and the need to protect the interests of businesses and individuals alike. This summit will bring together nationally recognized experts to engage in a dialogue to facilitate data driven policy making.

According to the Water Summit website, managing groundwater and maintaining safe water for a wide range of stakeholders is a current issue that needs a forum. The water policies we create and manage now will have a critical impact on our future.

The Water Policy Summit will be held April 7-8 at the National Water Center on the Tuscaloosa campus of The University of Alabama. For more information on this the Water Policy Summit please contact Pamela Harvey at 205-348-6605 or Also, visit our website at
