The Water Tower serves all of its stakeholders from water industry personnel to the general public to policy makers. We recognize that by engaging the customer/public with timely, accurate, and actionable information, these important stakeholders can be brought into the overarching policy discussions while utilities improve their overall transparency. This starts with the development of a platform, or ecosystem, where the public can learn about water and their role in its management, as well as gaining an understanding of the technological and financial considerations that go into delivering a high-quality product.
The Water Tower will offer specific engagement opportunities with water-related experts from around the world and right here in Gwinnett, STEAM-related workshops and camps, and space for the public to see research and technology demonstrations in practice.
