The Arizona Hydrological Society (AHS) held its annual conference on September 20–24 in Flagstaff. The title of this year’s symposium was “Changing Waterscapes and Water Ethics for the 21st Century.” Co-hosted by the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG), the event was particularly diverse and relevant.
