A clean environment as a result of a properly treated and maintained wastewater system is invaluable to the citizens we serve, yet many take it for granted. The Citizens Water Academy (CWA) educates participants on the quality of Mobile’s water source (Big Creek Lake), our ability to meet the need for water in our community, as well as how our systems are built and maintained. Knowledge gained during the CWA sessions will empower graduates to become ambassadors, enabling them to go into their communities and educate others about the water systems we depend on every day. We are also on a journey to rehabilitate our aging infrastructure. The CWA graduates are especially important in helping spread the word within our community about why this is so important.
We welcome opportunities to share our stories 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 would like to invite you to be a part of this academy.
During the CWA, participants will learn from MAWSS employees where their water comes from, how it is treated, and how it is delivered to your home. You will also learn how the wastewater treatment plants are operated, where the treated wastewater goes, and how you can help keep problems at bay by learning to be proactive.
