Where is our water coming from? Where does it go?
Those are a couple of questions that are being answered at the annual Water Academy.
Hosted by the Prince William County Service Authority (PWCSA), the free program takes place throughout five weeks.
It gives community members an inside look at the agency, which runs a wastewater treatment plant in Woodbridge.
“They learn about the Service Authority, about how their drinking water arrives at their home, what happens to the wastewater, how it gets treated and returned to the environment, what our role is in protecting the environment,” Deputy Communications Director Kathy Bentz said.
Teachers, local business owners, engineers, college students and retired individuals participate in the program.
Those interested in learning more about PWCSA and its role in the community may apply for the Water Academy next year.
