Fall 2022 Citizen’s Water Academy
Metro Nashville Water Services encourages everyone to sign up for the Fall 2022 Citizen’s Water Academy. The Citizen’s Water Academy (CWA) is an opportunity for Metro Water Services (MWS) customers to learn about our most precious natural resource, water, and how Water Services manages it from “river to river.” Citizen’s Water Academy is an in-person interactive five-session program, held over the course of 2.5 weeks.
Participants will have the opportunity to interact with Water Services Staff and experience the treatment process by touring various Water Services facilities – including our Research and Analytical Laboratory and historic Omohundro Water Treatment Plant. I’ve toured our K. R. Herington Water Treatment Plant and it’s quite fascinating. Through the Academy, MWS hopes to provide a better understanding of our resource and their processes to build a diverse network of leaders and influencers who are willing to share their knowledge in the community and serve as ambassadors for water.
