Service Opportunities/Internships

Athens-Clarke County, Water Conservation Office

The Water Conservation Office (WCO) is part of the Public Utilities Department of the Athens-Clarke County Unified Government. The WCO mission is to promote a culture of sustainability within the local community as it pertains to our water resources through conservation and education. This goal is accomplished through school programs, outreach within the community, annual events, and water conservation workshops.

Interns are responsible for preparing and presenting educational programs, aiding with tours of the water treatment facilities, assisting with community events, monitoring and posting on social media (including blogging), and other activities that support the WCO mission. The internship program is designed to provide each intern with a flexible learning experience that will include an independent project and training in environmental education curricula. Interns are supervised by the WCO graduate assistant.
