The Water Authority is now accepting applications for its Spring 2019 Citizens Water Academy program, which educates current and future leaders in San Diego County about water issues in our region.
Participants visit key water facilities and learn firsthand from several members of the Water Authority’s leadership team about critical water issues affecting our region through activities, discussions, and thought-provoking material covering water history, supply diversification strategies, supply planning, and facilities.
There are two evening classroom sessions (5:30 to 8:30 p.m.) on March 7, March 13 and a one daytime session (approximately 7:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.), on which includes a facility tour and graduation luncheon, on Saturday, March 23.
Here’s the application form, which needs to be submitted by Monday, February 11. Applications go through a competitive evaluation process before participants are selected. You can also nominate someone you think might be a good fit by completing this nomination form by Monday, February 4. Again, the program has high demand, so the selection process is competitive and acceptance is not guaranteed.
