December 13, 2016 - The 7th International Symposium for Wetland Systems for Water Pollution Control (WETPOL) will be held August 22 - 26, 2017, at the Big Sky Resort in Big Sky, Montana, USA. WETPOL is the preeminent global conference that brings together scientists, engineers and practitioners, working on the use of wetlands for water quality improvement. For the first time in the U.S., this conference will create unique opportunities for collaborative exchange, so new participants are encouraged to attend. A full program is planned, focused on domestic wastewater treatment wetlands, urban stormwater wetlands and bio-swales, riparian wetland restoration, wetlands in agricultural settings and wetland biogeochemistry. The conference will include one day of field trips to explore examples of constructed, restored and unique natural wetlands and riparian areas in the region.
