Fifth Annual Monongahela River Summit
April 19, 2010 - Waterfront Place Hotel, Morgantown, WV

A FORUM ON OPPORTUNITIES AND ISSUES FOR THE MON RIVER

ENERGY ISSUES, DRINKING WATER, and the DUNKARD CREEK FISH KILL:

Current Issues and Emerging Opportunities for the Mon River


Recognizing the unique opportunities provided by the Upper Monongahela River to its riverside communities and citizens, the Upper monongahela River Association, in conjunction with the Monongahela River Recreation and Commerce Committee of the Morgantown Area Chamber of Commerce VISION 2020 project, schedules an Annual Monongahela River Summit to provide a forum for a discussion of river issues.

This year's summit will feature a panel of water quality experts, discussing recent water quality issues affecting the river. Speakers will also address infrastructure needs and recreational and commercial opportunities. Attendees will be able to voice their concerns about river issues and proposed solutions to perceived problems.

The keynote address, “One river and two states: a personal and professional perspective for balancing competing demands from industries, regulators, and the public” will be presented by Colonel Mike Crall, Pittsburgh District Commander, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Following the summit we plan to prepare a "Proceedings" report outlining the problems and solutions presented at the Summit. This will be available on this summit website, www.MonRiverSummit.org .
