The Phoenix Water Wrangler Institute Program is Recruiting Conservation Volunteers
By AMWUA Staff
Phoenix Water Services has created an innovative volunteer program that provides an opportunity for community members to promote responsible water stewardship within the city.
The Phoenix Water Wrangler Institute program mobilizes citizens to serve as representatives at local events, community meetings, and educational workshops under the direction of a Site Coordinator or Water Conservation Staff by assisting in water conservation outreach, communication, and education. Through information sharing and community engagement, the Phoenix Water Wrangler volunteers will activate water conservation and stewardship in their communities.
Training for the program will include water 101, an overview of utility operations, water resources, water conservation, and outreach education. The virtual classes are set to begin on Saturday, October 23rd, and will be hosted for four consecutive Saturdays from 9 am until 12 pm (tentative).
