The Center for Water Policy at UW-Milwaukee is co-hosting a statewide conference titled, “Phosphorus: Lessons from 10+ Years of Numeric Standards for Wisconsin’s Waters.” This conference is a retrospective on Wisconsin’s phosphorus rules – analyzing implementation, compliance, and impact. We aim to connect academic researchers with professionals working on water issues, agricultural and conservation professionals and agencies, farmers and producers, policymakers, and the public. The conference will feature academic research and case studies to foster discussion around policy mechanisms that address the ongoing challenge of phosphorus pollution. The goal of this conference is to help inform a research agenda for the next decade and beyond.

New York Times best selling author Dan Egan will present the keynote address over lunch in conversation with Center for Water Policy Director Melissa Scanlan about his forthcoming book, The Devil’s Element: Phosphorus and a World Out of Balance

Join us in February to learn about Wisconsin’s leading efforts to regulate and manage phosphorus!
