Utility seeks community ambassadors
Wednesday, December 15, 2021 by Tai Moses
Austin Water is seeking community ambassadors – volunteers to help the utility reach out and engage the community in its efforts to update Austin’s 100-year water resource plan, Water Forward. The ambassadors “will engage with people in their networks to have conversations about water supply and demand issues, identify key concerns and priorities for these communities, and share their findings.” The update has a particular focus on equity, so the ambassadors “will help develop and incorporate community values into an Equity and Affordability Road Map and Tool for the Water Forward Plan update.” Austin Water encourages members of communities that have been historically underrepresented to apply (e.g., communities of color, LGBTQIA+ identities, people with past records, etc.). The term is one full year, beginning in February 2022. Learn more and apply here by Jan. 7.
