3 Welcome Welcome from University of Florida President from UF Water Institute DirectorBernie MachenDear Faculty, Students and Special Guests: I am pleased to welcome you to the University of Floridas third Water Institute Symposium. We have read much in the news in recent months about the battle over the quality and cleanup of Floridas rivers, lakes and streams. As the Florida Legislature and the courts sort through the competing claims, it falls to scientists, managers and educators to provide the knowledge that will inform decision-makers. With a focus on nutrient management and more than 350 experts from UF, state agencies, NGOs, utilities Floridas freshwater ecosystems. The Water Institute celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2011. Since it was founded, the Institute has actively nurtured and supported interdisciplinary research and collaborations between faculty and graduate students with different water specialties. Through research and events such as this symposium, the Institute makes the universitys intellectual capital available to policy makers and water users alike. The Water Institute is a dynamic organization that should help to guarantee the protection of a resource both fundamental to Floridas history and key to its future. Sincerely, J. Bernard Machen President University of Florida Dear Colleagues, This symposium provides an unparalleled venue that links leading researchers, educators and students with resource managers, policymakers, industry, non-governmental organizations, and artists interested in nutrient issues. Throughout the symposium participants will explore the science of nutrient dynamics, as well as challenges to, and creative solutions for, protect ing and restoring Floridas waterways. The symposium theme is especially timely, considering regulation. Over the course of the next two days 150 contributed oral and posters presentations and twelve panel discussions will focus on new research, education, policy and technology developments in six interdisciplinary areas: In addition an art exhibition, Just Add Water, is being held at the Reitz Union Gallery in con artists with the common purpose of exploring, advocating, and educating the public on water issues particular to Florida. Thanks again for attending the 3rd UF Water Institute Symposium. We value your contributions and encourage your active participation. Wendy Graham Carl S. Swisher Chair in Water Resources Director UF Water InstituteWendy Graham

We will also compare alternative policy mechanisms to stimulate nutrient removal (Payment for Ecosystem Services (PES), cost-shares for best management practices, mandatory requirements to implement pollution abatement projects, etc.).What can these different valuation (biophysical and economic) approaches contribute to the design of PES policies and markets? What are the various roles of different valuation approaches? In what ways can biophysi cal and economic valuation methods be integrated to inform policy for environmental service provision? What are the alternative approaches to designing PES?en Mark Brown, Professor, Environmental Engineering Sciences, University of Floridaen Damian Adams, Assistant Professor, University of Floridaen Tatiana Borisova, Assistant Professor, University of Floridaen Laila Racevskis, Assistant Professor, University of Florida Sponsored By: AMEC 10:00 AM 10:30 AM Refreshment Break Grand Ballr ooms CDGH Thursday

Ballr oom B (moderator: Richard Hamann, Associate in Law, College of Law, University of Florida) The regulation of nutrient pollution has been a subject of great controversy in Florida, a state with warm waters, extensive fertilization and naturally occurring sources. Federal and state efforts to develop numeric nutrient criteria over the last ten years have culminated in competing rules and multiple lawsuits. A diverse panel of stakeholders will review the status of rulemaking, implementation and litigation, then discuss a path forward to achieving water quality protection and restoration.en Mohammad O.
