Water is not a dry subject. Let us tell you why. Water Matters Citizens’ Academy is a six-week interactive program that provides 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.
Our final session on October 15 includes a graduation ceremony to celebrate your achievement. Most sessions are held in the downtown Spartanburg County Library Barrett Room. A light dinner is served at 5:30 p.m. each week.

Please consider applying for the 2019 class.
