The Spring Runoff Conference is held each spring at Utah State University (USU). Utah State University supports a broad community of students and faculty engaged in water education, research, and outreach, and the USU Water Initiative fosters interdisciplinary collaboration and collegial sharing of ideas within this community. The Spring Runoff Conference (so named because it is held at the end of winter and in anticipation of spring’s runoff season—a time of excitement in hydrology) provides an opportunity for the sharing of ideas and scholarly work on all aspects of water science, ecology, policy, engineering, and management.
