What is Water 101 Academy?

Water 101 Academy is a 5-session program that is open to residents of Santa Clara County who want to gain an understanding of local water issues and learn about current and future water projects going on in their local communities. Through this program, Valley Water aims to build and sustain a diverse network of leaders and advocates who are willing to serve as community water ambassadors on local water issues and refer others to future academy sessions.
