Educating and Engaging Our Community
NEW Water teamed up with the Green Bay Water Utility to help more than 3,000 middle school students learn about our watershed, and careers in water. The Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce's annual "Find Your Inspiration" event was held at the KI Center. NEW Water is proud to help address the identified community need to get youth thinking about their future careers. Learn more about NEW Water's Youth Apprenticeship Program.
