Scottsdale Water is one of the most advanced municipal water systems in the country. The Citizen Water Academy provides an inside look at all aspects of Scottsdale Water utilities and innovative technologies.

The five-week course takes participants inside our state-of-the-art facilities, demonstrates daily operations from lab functions to water main repair, and explains all facets of Scottsdale Water operations, planning, and policies.
