A water/wastewater engineer is an environmental engineer or scientist who works to help ensure the safety of public (and even sometimes private) water systems. This engineer works in treatment plants to ensure that fresh water and used water are both treated properly and systematically. They also typically monitor local soil and groundwater to ensure these environmental factors reflect the monitoring and output recorded by water treatment facilities.

Lead project management and reporting for team members, and set schedules and goals.
