The Prince William County Service Authority has opened registration for its summer 2019 Water Academy.
The five-week program, which will be held on Wednesday evenings from June 19 through July 24, offers tours, hands-on activities and conversations with Service Authority leadership. The goal of the Water Academy is to educate Service Authority customers and community members about all aspects of the water and wastewater utility, as well as the role the Service Authority plays in their daily lives. Forty-four individuals have graduated from the Water Academy since it began in summer 2017.
This year’s participants will receive a tour of the H.L. Mooney Advanced Water Reclamation Facility and other operational facilities, including an inside look at a water storage tank. They will also learn about the Service Authority’s mission and vision, daily operations, water quality and budgeting and planning processes. There will be engaging activities that allow participants to learn more about the local watershed and the water and wastewater treatment processes.
“We have received extremely positive evaluations from graduates about their Water Academy experiences,” said Deputy Communications Director Kathy Bentz. “Our alumni include teachers, who receive continuing education credits; local business owners; engineers; environmental professionals; college students; and retirees.”
The deadline to register for this educational opportunity is May 15. Visit this site for more information or to apply.
