“The FES conferences bring together the best in the business, from industry, the municipalities, and the regulatory agencies. There is an incredible exchange of cutting-edge information and knowledge, along with great opportunities to network with others in the engineering community.” -- CDM Smith

"This seminar goes well beyond "here's how you get a permit." It presents real data and real issues. If you want to understand where Florida water management came from, how it is really working, the challenges ahead, and some of the concepts for the future - don't miss this one. This is time well spent whether you are an FES member or not."  Anonymous

"Best day and one half update you can get. This format lets the participants touch base with the key areas of water resources with minimal fuss. I would certainly encourage my fellow PE's to make this a regular event on their calendar. It is timely, convenient and well worth the effort."  Alvin Bishop, PE

"I found the water summit to be informative and provided for interactions with others through the state. The speakers were very informative. The pace was excellent. The price was just right. I plan on attending next year."  John C. Snowe, PE

"Really enjoyed the "smaller" atmosphere! Great cross section of subjects, presenters and attendees. A lot of information in a short period of time."  Robert Kermitz, Vice President England, Thims & Miller

"This is a well-rounded seminar that helps put together the big picture of water in the State. Combining Engineers and Geologists enhances one's understanding of our interactions both in our practices and in the real-world execution of projects. The explanation of legislation, both pending and enacted, is an interesting and welcome addition to the technical presentations...and good food, excellent company, and PDHs to boot!"  Mark D. Repasky, PE Wastewater Technologies, Inc.
