Community Ambassadors are neighborhood residents who can be a voice for their communities. With their experience, insight, and connections, they help us determine how to best utilize our resources and address their community’s concerns.

Community Ambassadors act as advocates for their community, provide information about upcoming events, and help educate their community about drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater-related topics. Capital Region Water will continue to work with our ambassadors to build knowledge and advocate for their municipality.

  • Help coordinate and volunteer to staff CRW exhibits at community events
