Apply to Water Matters

Water is not a dry subject. Let us tell you why. Water Matters Citizens’ Academy is an interactive program that provides you with the opportunity to get an inside look at Spartanburg Water.

Water Matters includes a wide variety of hands-on activities, tours of our award-winning facilities and reservoirs, as well as presentations of new and innovative projects by our experienced team.
This free program of six consecutive sessions begins September 18 and will include six evening sessions and an additional Saturday field trip (September 29) to view our facilities in action. Our final session on October 23 includes a graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievement. Most sessions will be held in the downtown Spartanburg County Library Barrett Room. A light dinner is served at 5:30 each week.
