Safer water and reliable sewer services are the cornerstones of public health. The importance of a clean environment through properly treated and maintained wastewater is invaluable to approximately 200,000 citizens that we serve.
We welcome opportunities to share our story with the community. If you are interested in taking the time to learn about the strategy behind our “Keep Water Working” campaign and how MAWSS dollars are spent, we would like to invite you to attend the Citizens Water Academy.
The goal of the academy is to arm graduates with data and information so that they understand the workings of a water and wastewater utility. The selected individuals will receive information not commonly known to area citizens. This heightened knowledge will empower our new team of ambassadors to educate others about the water we depend on every day. Let us better inform you about our most precious natural resource, water!
Water is a vital resource to our livelihood, yet we take it for granted. The Citizens Water Academy will discuss the quality of our source water, Big Creek Lake, and our ability to meet the growing demand for water in our community. This inaugural academy is especially important now as we embark on ventures to rehab our aging infrastructure.
During the academy, candidates will receive approximately 15 hours of instruction, tour treatment facilities, and hear from our experts. The classes are scheduled for Monday, January 14, and Wednesday, January 30, from 8:30 am - 12:30 pm. The final class and graduation ceremony are on Friday, February 8, from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. MAWSS will offer this program at no cost to the attendee. However, we request that when you sign up for the academy, you commit to the entire program. Breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be provided.
