A clean environment as a result of a properly treated and maintained wastewater system is invaluable to the citizens we serve, yet we take it for granted. The Citizens Water Academy (CWA) educates graduates on the quality of Mobile’s 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 into their communities and educate others about the water systems 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 within our community.
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 would like to invite you to attend this academy.
During the CWA sessions, participants will receive approximately 20 hours of instruction, tour treatment facilities, and learn from our employees.
Our Spring Citizens Water Academy has been postponed as we're following social distance directives during the COVID-19 pandemic. We will be rescheduling the academy as soon as conditions allow. In the meantime, you can still apply to be a part of our next class of ambassadors! For the latest information follow us on social media via YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
