RUMBLES - September 2015

of special note RUMBLES SEPTEMBER 2015 | 37 RMSAWWA/RMWEA Inaugural New Mexico Spring Workshop The first New Mexico Spring Workshop of the Rocky Mountain Section was a great success. With 131 reg-istrants, the University of New Mexico Rotunda at the Science and Technology Park was full. Attendees were treated to a day and a half of technical presentations on topics of water, wastewater and reuse, as well as asset and knowledge management. Students from New Mexico State University, the University of New Mexico, and Colorado State Univer-sity attended and displayed 16 posters, which provoked lively discussions. Poster topics varied widely from floodplain man-agement to water treatment solutions, to uranium recovery. Abstracts for both presentations and posters are available at http://www.rmsawwa.org/index. php/conferences. About 40 people attended the social event at Monte Vista Fire Station on Thursday evening after the technical program. Attendees visited on the upstairs patio and were treated to deli-cious appetizers and drinks. The lunchtime keynote speak-ers were Adria Bodour, from the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer-ing Center, and RMSAWWA Chair-Elect, Sarah Dominick, from Denver Water. In her presentation Application of Data Driven Management at the Kirtland Air Force Base Bulk Fuels Facility Spill, Bodour discussed how the data collected from a number of wells throughout Southeast Albuquerque is used to monitor a plume and to make decisions in remediation design. Dominick spoke about the value of RMSAWWA/RMWEA membership, and encouraged everyone to participate in these organizations. The New Mexico Involvement Committee (NMIC) hopes to make this workshop an annual event. The Committee is plan-ning a larger venue for next year.
