Water treatment operators work in plants where freshwater is pumped from wells, rivers, streams, or reservoirs, and then treated before being distributed to customers.
Water treatment plant operators are responsible for running equipment, reading instruments and gauges, taking samples to run tests, and adjusting the amount of chemicals being added to the water.
Wastewater treatment plant operators remove pollutants from domestic or industrial waste, purify and clarify water, dispose of sewage, and clean and maintain equipment.
Water distribution operators are responsible for maintaining and operating water distribution systems along with the maintenance of water mains, water services, fire hydrants, water valves, and backflow devices.
Wastewater collection operators inspect, clean, repair, and maintain wastewater collection systems, and prevent and respond to sewage overflows and blockages.
