30 April – 4 May, USSD 2018

For the first time, USSD will hold its annual meeting in the state of Florida. The Theme of the 38th Annual Conference, A Balancing Act: Dams, Levees and Ecosystems, reflects the importance of environmentally sustainable water projects within diverse and sometimes fragile ecosystems.

The Host for the 2018 Conference and Exhibition is the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District.

The 2018 USSD Conference Theme is A Balancing Act: Dams, Levees and Ecosystems. Dams and levees continue to provide significant benefits to society. These benefits include flood control, water supply, irrigation, renewable energy, navigation, recreation, and habitat and environmental enhancement. Many of our existing dams and levees are poised to provide additional benefits and solutions to some of our nation’s future infrastructure, environmental, social, and economic challenges. The theme represents some of the unique challenges that coastal environments and delicate ecosystems face, which requires balancing the purposes of dams and levees with environmental, social and economic interests.

Looking forward to meeting you at our booth 309
