The afternoon program will be held from 1:00 to 4:30 p.m. at the US EPA Andrew W. Breidenbach Environmental Research Center (AWBERC) in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator for the US EPA, and Karen Mills, Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), announced the formal launch of Confluence-the Water Technology Innovation Cluster of the Ohio River Valley Region
on January 18, 2011. During the past 2 years, Confluence, EPA and partners have come together to build on regional capabilities, resources and successes to help meet the water technology demands of today's environmental challenges.
