Water Citizen Academy

The Scottsdale Water Citizen Academy provides an inside look at all aspects of your city’s water utility, which happens to be one of the most advanced municipal water systems in the country.

Great news, Scottsdale Water’s Citizen Academy will resume its Fall and Spring sessions starting in Fall 2021. However, open registration will not return until Spring 2022 as cancelled COVID class attendees have filled the Fall 2021 class.

To be notified of future Academies, email WaterAcademy@ScottsdaleAZ.gov with your name and contact information. This will ensure you receive information prior to new classes and registration dates/times.

Course overview

Citizen Academy smallThe five-week course takes participants inside our state-of-the-art facilities, demonstrates daily operations from lab work to water main repair, and explains all facets of Scottsdale Water operations, planning and policies. Topics covered include drinking water treatment and distribution, water quality testing, recycled water treatment and uses and long-term water supply planning.

During the fifth night of the academy, participants tour Scottsdale's Advanced Water Treatment Facility – the only direct potable reuse plant in Arizona (and one of only three in the country) – and participate in a taste test of ultrapure recycled water!
