Applications Now Open For New JXN Water Academy

Jackson, Miss. – JXN Water announces the launch of the Water Academy, a unique learning opportunity designed specifically for JXN Water customers.

Applications opened this week and the first session is expected to start this summer.

Through the JXN Water Academy, participants will learn about water and sewer management and have direct interaction with water experts. At the end of the academy, participants will have the opportunity to visit the O.B. Curtis Water Treatment Plant, getting behind-the-scenes access and insights into water treatment operations.

“Education fosters positive change. The Water Academy is an important step forward for our public education efforts and building opportunities for the community to understand the water system better,” said Ted Henifin, JXN Water Interim Third-Party Manager.

“We are excited to launch the Water Academy and provide our community with the knowledge and tools they need to become informed about the ongoing process of changing our water system for the better,” said Aisha Carson, JXN Water Social Impact Strategist, “Water is a precious resource. By equipping our residents with the right information, we can work together to build a more resilient and informed community.”
