Citizens Academy


What is the El Paso Water Citizens Academy?

The vitality of our community depends on a sustainable water future. The Citizens Academy is an opportunity for emerging leaders in El Paso to learn about the region’s challenges, water supply plans and infrastructure needs.  This program includes:

  • Behind-the-scene tours of EPWater’s facilities, from the laboratory to water treatment facilities
  • Special presentations from water, wastewater and stormwater experts
  • Interactions and discussions with EPWater executives
  • Opportunities to voice your concerns and ideas

Topics covered include our history, drinking water treatment and distribution, water quality, environmental stewardship, stormwater, wastewater and water resources.

What’s the time commitment?

The Citizens Academy requires a time commitment of one Friday morning per month over five months. The three-hour morning program will include a breakfast. The program culminates with a Citizens Academy graduation certificate.
