Missouri Water Resources Research Center turns 50
In commemoration of its 50th anniversary, the Missouri Water Resources Research Center (MOWRRC) held a symposium featuring speakers from all over central Missouri on topics including Missouri water issues, water management and water conservation. The event was held on the University of Missouri campus Oct. 7 and 8.
Former center director Tom Clevenger, who served as director for more than 30 years before stepping down in 2013, presented a retrospective of MOWRRC at the beginning of the symposium. He later was recognized at a retirement reception later that night.
Glen T. Daigger, senior vice president and chief technology officer of CH2M Hill, delivered the symposium’s keynote lecture, discussing the future of water in the world, as well as the priorities among those in the water profession.
