KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI
MUCH MORE THAN YOU’D EXPECT…
with water resources in harmony with the built environment!
Kansas City is a timeless city, known for its beautiful array of fountains. Established
in 1850, its history runs like an old Western movie. It is a story of cowboys and
Indians, of westward expansion, and of the rugged men and women who traveled
to and through the area in search of a new beginning. Yet today’s Kansas City is
equally as colorful. Whether you’re a theater lover or a sports enthusiast, a history
buff or a river buff, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in this vibrant Midwest
metropolis.

For starters, take a look at the Lewis and Clark Memorial, take a trip to the
National World War I Museum, visit the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum,
Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary, Hallmark
Visitors’ Center, American Jazz Museum, or the Kansas City Power & Light District
(with dining and entertainment hot spots where you can enjoy BBQ at its best!).
Join in celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Kansas City Zoo by watching the
antics of its more than 1,000 residents in their naturalistic settings. Or head over to
the Sprint Center and immerse yourself in the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of
Fame in the state-of-the-art College Basketball Experience!

All this takes stage on the banks of the mighty Missouri River. What better setting
in which to focus on and discuss THE GREAT RIVERS OF THE WORLD and the
delicate balance struck between bio-diversity and development for a sustainable
future!

Join us at the 2009 EWRI Congress for the year’s most important mid-America
happening for environmental/water engineering professionals! Our Congress venue
and official Congress headquarters hotel – the Kansas City Marriott Downtown –
puts us at the confluence of the action in KC!

surrounding area, please visit our Congress website
