SEEwater 2013: the Sac State and USGS science showcase
Dear SEEwater 2013 participants and invitees,
Regretfully, the SEEwater 2013 event planned for April 24th, 2013 must be postponed due to the impacts of sequestration on federal agencies such as the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). A main goal of SEEwater was to highlight the water science and engineering activities taking place on our campus with our faculty, students, campus programs, and USGS affiliates. Additionally, other federal agency participants were uncertain if they would be permitted to participate due to the same sequestration impacts. As a result, the SEEwater Organizational Team thought it prudent to postpone the event until our federal partners could fully participate in what had been materializing into a great campus and community event.
Thank you to all who spent time working on this project and it is my sincere hope that this is only a postponement. I want to particularly thank the USGS staff, Sacramento State faculty and staff, Sacramento State Office of Research and Sponsored Projects, and the Sacramento State Office of Public Affairs who participated as members of the SEEwater Organizational Team. We would also like to extend appreciation to the campus and external participants who had committed to bringing exhibits, posters, and career panel contributions to the event. Please stay tuned for the announcement of the reschedule date. I can be contacted by phone or email with any questions or comments surrounding the event or reschedule plans. You can also visit our SEEwater website at www.csus.edu/nsm/SEEwater for current information on the event.
Sincerely, Susan M Crawford
