Carmel Citizens

Utility Academy

The City of Carmel Utilities is proud to present the Carmel Citizens Utility Academy, providing insight to the public on the responsibilities and operations of Water, Wastewater, Trash & Recycling and Household Hazardous Waste Disposal services. The Fall 2018 program was the first class open to the public.

We have designed the program to accomplish several goals. The most important, is to open channels of communication between the citizens of Carmel and the Utility Department. Additionally, we want to develop an understanding of the Utilities role in providing our customers water, wastewater and trash & recycling services. The objective of the Academy is to make better informed citizens, with an accurate knowledge of our many responsibilities and functions.

The Carmel Citizens Utility Academy is a seven week program. The session presenters are staff members of Carmel Utilities and provide instruction and information concerning a particular area of their profession.
