Apply to Participate for the 2023 Citizen Water Academy
The William G. Stowe Citizen Water Academy of Central Iowa is designed to help current and emerging leaders in our community learn and appreciate our most important natural resource – the water we depend on for life.
Attendees receive 16 hours of instruction, tour multiple treatment plants operated by Des Moines Water Works, listen to presentations from soil and water professionals, and interact with Des Moines Water Works staff over the four sessions of this program. It is the Academy's goal that participants not only have a better understanding of their local water utility but are also equipped to help lead the discussion on important water issues now and in the future.
“You covered a lot of information in a short amount of time. I'm impressed with the program.”
– Katie Rock, Polk Soil and Water Conservation District Commissioner; Citizen Water Academy 2018 graduate
