PennTec 2018, the Annual Technical Conference of the Pennsylvania Water Environment Association (PWEA), will be held at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey PA June 3-6. The Research Session on Tuesday, June 5 at the conference is devoted to undergraduate and graduate student research. Its intent is to provide a showcase for ongoing research activities in the fields of wastewater, water quality, and environmental management relevant to Pennsylvania. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to): wastewater treatment; sludge/biosolids management; beneficial reuse; bioenergy production from wastewater; agricultural runoff; stormwater treatment; watershed management; groundwater remediation; and industrial wastewater treatment.
Posters will be judged at the Conference by faculty and practicing water quality professionals and outstanding posters will receive awards (based on the quality of their presentations). Each of the top three undergraduate and graduate poster presenters will receive a Student Research Poster Award certificate. In addition, each of the five oral presenters will receive a Student Research Platform Award certificate and abstract publication in the Keystone Water Quality Manager magazine. (Conference registration and lunch are free for participating student presenters.)
