On the heels of last year’s unprecedented one-billion-dollar investment in water infrastructure backed by the Texas Legislature and 78% of general election voters, water is finally having its moment. As demand grows every day and Texans look to new supplies, the groundwater world continues to adapt and plan for the future. Groundwater managers and stakeholders from across the state will gather at the Texas Groundwater Summit in San Antonio to dissect hot-button issues, share success stories, and learn about cutting-edge studies over three days at the state’s premier groundwater event.

Texas Groundwater Summit attendees also enjoy the opportunity to network and collaborate with other groundwater professionals at several signature events. Conference registration includes evening receptions on Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as a Desserts & Drinks Networking Event on Wednesday night, where the community gathers for ice cream sundaes, beverages, and some friendly competition in outdoor games. A luncheon on Wednesday and coffee breaks throughout the conference provide a chance to debrief the educational sessions and hear others’ perspectives.

Regular registration is open through August 2, with late and on-site registration rates available after that. Discounts apply for Texas Alliance of Groundwater Districts members, non-profit organizations, and government agencies. A limited number of exhibit tables and sponsorships are still available.
