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 four-hour morning program will include a light breakfast and lunch. The program culminates with a Citizens Academy graduation certificate.

How do I apply?

The application to apply for the EPWater inaugural Citizens Academy class is closed. We will be accepting applications at the end of the year for the 2024 class.
