  • Investigate state-of-the-art technologies for treatment of produced waters;
  • Initiate discussion of public policy alternatives to facilitate development of this valuable resource; and,
  • Define a course of action to further evaluate and pursue these opportunities.

The workshop is co-sponsored by the Bureau of Reclamation, the National Institute for Water Resources, U.S. Geological Survey and the Family Farm Alliance.
