On Friday, September 26, members of the Alabama Water Agencies Working Group will discuss their recommendations for the formation of a comprehensive water management plan for Alabama at a symposium at the University of Alabama’s Bryant Conference Center.

It provides a starting point for developing a comprehensive plan for managing and protecting Alabama’s water resources.
