Helen Dawson to Present at the ABA 35th Water Law Conference

Helen Dawson (Washington, D.C.) will speak on "The Science Behind Water Quality" with Kelly DiNatale at the American Bar Association's (ABA) 35th Water Law Conference at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles, California from 9:45 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on March 28, 2017.

For its 35th year, the ABA Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources' (SEER) Water Law Conference will bring together government, nonprofit, and private practitioners to discuss emerging issues, hot topics, and recent developments in water law and policy.

Attending this year's SEER Water Law Conference on behalf of Geosyntec will be Mark Hanna (California), Helen Dawson (Washington, D.C.), and Nandra Weeks (Florida).


Your local groundwater is contaminated. What are the implications for your city's drinking water, treatment facilities, and local rivers? Do these pollutants interact either with each other or with the local geology, and what implications might those interactions have for water quality and environmental regulations? While the laws governing water quality are important, water practitioners must also understand the science of water quality to best advise their clients regarding the Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, CERCLA, and similar state and local water quality laws. This panel of technical experts will provide both new and veteran water lawyers with an opportunity to improve their water science literacy. Panelists will discuss key scientific concepts that practitioners encounter while working on water quality laws, including surface and ground water hydrology, water chemistry, pollutant fate and transport, and pollution control and remediation.
