Median of all compensation (including tips, bonus, and overtime) by years of experience.
Water Treatment Plant Managers with more experience do not necessarily bring home bigger paychecks. In fact, experience in this field tends to impact compensation minimally. Survey participants with less than five years' experience pocket $43K on average, but those with five to 10 years of experience enjoy a much bigger median of $50K. For Water Treatment Plant Managers, 10 to 20 years of experience on the job amounts to an average salary of $57K. Respondents who claim more than 20 years of experience may encounter pay that doesn't quite reflect their extensive experience; these veterans report a median income of around $61K.
