  • Title: Water and Liquid Waste Treatment Plant and System Operators (Jobs)
    Descriptive info: Water and Liquid Waste Treatment.. Plant and System Operators.. Check out Current Job Offerings.. Nature of the Work.. Clean water is essential for everyday life.. Water treatment plant and system operators treat water so that it is safe to drink.. Liquid waste treatment plant and system operators, also known as wastewater treatment plant and system operators, remove harmful pollutants from domestic and industrial liquid waste so that it is safe to return to the environment.. Water is pumped from wells, rivers, streams, and reservoirs to water treatment plants, where it is treated and distributed to customers.. Wastewater travels through customers' sewer pipes to wastewater treatment plants, where it is either treated and returned to streams, rivers, and oceans or reused for irrigation and landscaping.. Operators in both types of plants control equipment and processes that remove or destroy harmful materials, chemical compounds, and microorganisms from the water.. They also control pumps, valves, and other equipment that moves the water or wastewater through the various treatment processes, after which they dispose of the removed waste materials.. Operators read, interpret, and adjust meters and gauges to make sure that plant equipment and processes are working properly.. Operators operate chemical-feeding devices, take samples of the water or wastewater, perform chemical and biological laboratory analyses, and adjust the amounts of chemicals, such as chlorine, in the water.. They use a variety of instruments to sample and measure water quality.. Water and wastewater treatment plant and system operators increasingly rely on computers to help monitor equipment, store the results of sampling, make process-control decisions, schedule and record maintenance activities, and produce reports.. Occasionally, operators must work during emergencies.. A heavy rainstorm, for example, may cause large amounts of wastewater to flow into sewers, exceeding a plant's treatmetn capacity.. Emergencies also can be caused by conditions inside a plant, such as chlorine gas leaks or oxygen deficiencies.. To handle these conditions, operators are trained to make an emergency management response and use special safety equipment and procedures to protect public health and the facility.. During these periods, operators may work under extreme pressure to correct problems as quickly as possible.. The specific duties of plant operators depend on the type and size of the plant.. In smaller plants, one operator may control all of the machinery, perform tests, keep records, handle complaints, and perform repairs and maintenance.. A few operators may handle both a water treatment and a wastewater treatment plant.. In larger plants with many employees, operators may be more specialized and monitor only one process.. The staff also may include chemists, engineers, laboratory technicians, mechanics, helpers, supervisors, and a superintendent.. Water pollution standards are larely set by two major Federal environmental statutes: the Clean Water Act, which regulates the discharge of pollutants, and the Safe Drinking Water Act, which specifies standards for drinking water.. Industrial facilities that send their wastes to municipal treatment plants must meet certain minimum standards to ensure that the wastes have been adequately pretreated and will not damage municipal treatment facilities.. Municipal water treatment plants also must meet stringent standards for drinking water.. The list of contaminants regulated by these statutes has grown over time.. As a result, plant operators must be familiar with the guidelines established by Federal regulations  ...   Water Act Amendments of 1996, enforced by the U.. S.. Environmental Protection Agency, specify national minimum standards for certification and recertification of operators of community and nontransient, noncommunity water systems.. As a result, operators must pass an examination certifying that they are capable of overseeing wastewater treatment plant operations.. There are different levels of certification, depending on the operator's experience and training.. Higher levels qualify the operator for overseeing a wider variety of treatment processes.. Certification requirements vary by State and by size of the treatment plant.. Although relocation may mean having to become certified in a new jurisdiction, many States accept other States' certifications.. Most State drinking water and water pollution control agencies offer courses to improve operators' skills and knowledge.. The courses cover principles of treatment processes and process control, laboratory procedures, maintenance, management skills, collection systems, safety, chlorination, sedimentation, biological treatment, sludge treatment and disposal, and flow measurements.. Some operators take correspondence courses on subjects related to water and wastewater treatment, and some employers pay part of the tuition for related college courses in science and engineering.. As operators are promoted, they become responsible for more complex treatment processes.. Some operators are promoted to plant supervisor or superintendent; others advance by transferring to a larger facility.. Postsecondary training in water and wastewater treatment, coupled with increasingly responsible experience as an operator, may be sufficient to qualify a worker for becoming superintendent of a small plant, where a superintendent also serves as an operator.. However, educational requirements are rising as larger, more complex treatment plants are built to meet new drinking water and water pollution control standards.. With each promotion, the operator must have greater knowledge of Federal, State, and local regulations.. Superintendents.. Are you looking for a job in a water plant in your area? Are you an employer at a water plant looking for possible employees to work? If so, check out the.. Water Plant Classifieds Ads.. Post your resume or job openings and search for listings already in our database.. For employers:.. When searching for possible employees, you will only see their credentials.. Their name, address, phone number, etc, will not be shown.. You will see what Class License they have, if any, where they live, their education and experience.. You can email a particular employee from our site, but you will not see the email address.. If they are interested in contacting you, they have the responsibility of contacting you and setting up a meeting.. For employees:.. When you are posting your resume, your information is kept private.. No one will see your name, address or phone number when doing a search of resumes.. You are responsible for contacting the employer back if someone initially contacts you about a job.. If you currently work at a water plant and enter that PWSID #, which is unique for every plant, when someone does a search that is from the same water plant (same PWSID #), they will not see your entry at all.. This site was created to be as safe and private for the users as possible and still allow the communication between employer/employee to take place.. I hope you find the site helpful in filling positions and finding jobs in the state of Virginia!..
