The National University and Cuyamaca College pride themselves on serving the labor needs of the water supply industry. No other resource is more vital to California’s survival and prosperity than its water supply. The water and wastewater industry anticipates a growing demand for highly skilled professionals in the years to come. As current seasoned executives retire, water and wastewater agencies will face an increasing number of vacancies, many of which require a bachelor’s degree. This academic journey is made possible through the insight and recommendations of regional employers coordinated by the Center for Water Studies at Cuyamaca College and the San Diego County Water Authority.
