Setting Up Whole Plant Models : Nebraska


This training is being conducted as a pre-function to the Nebraska Water Environment Association’s Great Plains Conference to be held on April 15th-16th at the same venue. Attendance at the conference is not necessary to register for the BioWin training, although you can register independently for both if you desire to attend each training event. The Great Plains Conference is a two-day professional conference with regional presentations from engineering consultants, utilities, and regulatory staff on the topics of wastewater treatment, wastewater collections, stormwater, and regulatory compliance. Please visit to learn more, see the agenda of presentations, and for registration links.

NOTE : Signing up for the BioWin course does not automatically register you for the conference – to do so, please visit the conference web site using the link above.
