Due to the safety challenges related to COVID-19, Des Moines Water Works has decided to cancel the 2020 session of the Citizen Water Academy. Dates and times for the 2021 Citizen Water Academy will be announced next spring.
The Citizen Water Academy is a free, four-session crash course about the history, use and management of water in the Central Iowa region. The mission of the Academy is to create a network of emerging leaders who are knowledgeable and engaged in water issues.
