Registration now underway for the first Avondale Citizen Water Alliance Academy 

Become an inaugural member of Avondale’s Citizen Water Alliance (ACWA) Academy! The City of Avondale is inviting residents and businesses to participate in a hands-on, interactive, highly informative citizens academy devoted to the topic of all things water and wastewater.

Engage with the city’s water professionals who plan, build, protect and deliver services for Avondale’s vast water/wastewater infrastructure. Go behind-the-scenes with tours of Avondale’s water reclamation facility, wetlands and water well-sites. Learn where your water comes from, how its treated, delivered, reclaimed and funded through water rates. Take a virtual journey through the city’s sewer pipe system with high-tech cameras, learn how a fire hydrant works and get a first-hand look at the specialized equipment it takes to properly operate and maintain the water/sewer systems. Participants will also get to visit the award-winning Avondale Aquaculture site, the state’s first and only municipal fish hatchery. 

The first of four sessions kicks off on Wednesday, August 7. The remaining three sessions will be held on Wednesday, August 21, September 11 and September 25 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the city’s Municipal Operations Center, 399 E. Lower Buckeye Rd. A light dinner will be served at each session. Enrollment is free, and is open to residents, the business community, and stakeholders interested in developing a better understanding of Avondale’s water portfolio, infrastructure, capital planning and the intricate rate setting methodology that funds it all. Graduates from the academy will leave with a better understanding of the value of water, the costs associated with its production, treatment, delivery and reclamation, and how they can save money through water conservation.

ACWA graduates will be recognized at a City Council meeting in October. Space is limited and open on a first-come, first served basis. To register, please visit or call (623) 333-4422 for more information.
