In the spring of 2014, Extended Learning at California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) announced a new course entitled “Survey of Water Management in Southern California.”  The Vallecitos Water District helped develop the course in collaboration with other local industry leaders to help prepare for the looming shortage of people with enough knowledge and experience to manage a water or wastewater utility.

The Survey of Water Management course incorporates the study of regional water usage and sources, disposal and recycling, water infrastructure, impact of water shortage as well as career opportunities in water management. Consisting of 8 three-hour evening lectures by local water experts and two Saturday tours of local state-of-the-art water facilities, the course culminates with a Practicum Research Project that allows students to work with a local water organization to address a current problem or issue.  The survey course is a precursor to the Water Resources Management Certificate. Learn more about the Water Management Program...
