Two qualified individuals interested in discovering the crucial role a water operator plays in the treatment of drinking water and wastewater are being sought. The program will cover all things water, starting at the reservoir with filtration and disinfection, exploring distribution and collection and finishing at the wastewater treatment plant.  Their vision is to introduce someone to the water industry and provide them with the training and certification necessary to be prepared to compete for a career in this essential and highly rewarding field.
