Metro Water Services Invites the Public to Apply for Fall 2019 Citizen's Water Academy

9/5/2019

Metro Water Services (MWS) is inviting the public to apply for its second ever Citizen’s Water Academy, a five-session program to learn about our most precious natural resource, water, and how MWS manages it from “river to river.”

Through the Academy, MWS hopes to provide a better understanding of this important resource and MWS processes to build a diverse network of leaders who can share their knowledge as ambassadors with their community.

The program includes tours of MWS facilities, informative presentations, interactive demonstrations in MWS' state-of-the-art lab, and the opportunity to interact with MWS staff and other water experts.

The fall program consists of five two-hour sessions:

  • Tuesday, October 1, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., “Imagine a Day Without Water”
  • Tuesday, October 8, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., “Protecting the Environment”
  • Tuesday, October 15, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., “A Sustainable Future”
  • Tuesday, October 22, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., “Protecting Public Health”
  • Tuesday, October 29, 5:30 p.m.–7:30 p.m., “The Value of Water”

Class size is limited and the selection process is competitive.

To apply, complete the application form available online at wateracademy.nashville.gov. Participants must be able to commit to attend all 5 sessions.

The application deadline is September 19 and MWS will notify participants of acceptance no later than September 20.
