He works on a wide variety of groundwater projects around the country, specializing in high-capacity wells and groundwater resource management. Formerly a partner in a Denver-based water rights company and the chief geoscientist for an international drilling company, he has broad experience in well construction and maintenance, as well as water rights issues. Drinks and appetizers, sponsored by the vendors, will be available prior to dinner and following the presentation.

Tuesday is filled with presentations by vendors, regulators, and
environmental industry experts sharing the most up to date information. Please refer to the agenda below for a complete listing of speakers. This year we have a very special guest who will be our luncheon speaker, Ms. Carolyn Hoskinson, Director of the EPA Office of Underground Storage Tanks.

Directions to the Stoney Creek Inn
Creek Inn is located just off the combined Interstate 35/80. Both I35
& I80 merge together along the north side of the Des Moines
Metropolitan area, thus making Stoney Creek very easy to access.
Regardless of the direction you are traveling, exit the Interstate at
the 86th Street / Exit 129 and proceed north to Birchwood Court on the

Creek Court with the Stoney Creek Inn on your right hand side.
