MAWSS Citizens Water Academy

The Fall Citizens Water Academy (CWA) will educate participants on the quality of MAWSS water source (Big Creek Lake), our ability to meet the growing demand for water in our community, and how our systems are built and maintained. Knowledge gained during the CWA sessions will empower graduates to become ambassadors, enabling them to go out and educate others about the water system we depend on every day. Additionally, as we embark on a journey to rehabilitate our aging infrastructure, the CWA graduates are especially important in helping spread the word. 

We welcome opportunities to share our story within the community. If you are interested in learning about the strategy behind our “Keep Water Working” campaign and what we at MAWSS do for the community, we invite you to apply for the fall CWA.

During the four CWA sessions, participants will receive approximately 19 hours of instruction, tour treatment facilities, and learn from a panel of experts. The classes are scheduled for the following dates and times: 

  • Session 1 - Wednesday, October 2, from 9am - 1pm; 
  • Session 2 - Tuesday, October 8, from 9am - 1pm; 
  • Session 3 - (Tour day) Wednesday, October 16, from 9am - 4pm; 
  • Session 4 - Wednesday, October 23, from 9am - 1pm. 

The program is offered at no cost to the participants provided they complete the entire program. Space is limited and all that apply may not be chosen. Applicants will be notified by September 20 if they were accepted into the fall academy.
