The Prince William County Service Authority’s (PWCSA) Water Academy is being recognized for helping the environment.
The five-week Water Academy has received a Green Community Award from Prince William County.
It was named Best Program, a recognition that focuses on programs which create a healthier environment, according to a release.
The program, which began in summer 2017, seeks to teach community members about the water and wastewater utility and the role it plays in everyday life.
“The Water Academy was designed to engage our customers in an entirely new way,” Community Relations and Outreach Program Manager Kathy Bentz said in a release. “We are honored to receive the Green Community Award for this innovative program that gives participants an up-close look at their local water utility and its commitment to environmental stewardship.”
This is the second consecutive year, the Service Authority has received a Green Community Award.
Last year, it was named the winner of the Top Green category, which goes to a business or organization that protect the environment.
PWCSA will be honored at an award ceremony that will be held on May 20 at Ben Lomond Historic Site in Manassas.
The utility is accepting application for the 2018 Water Academy until May 15.
