Job Description for Waste Water Plant Operator

Waste water plant operators ensure drinking water is safe for consumption by the general public. To conduct this task, operators use many types of equipment that are usually housed in very large plants. The machines inside the plants intake water from many sources ranging from rivers to streams to sewers. The main task of an operator is to monitor the machines, as well as maintain and take measurements/readings of the data the equipment collects. Operators must pay close attention to the smell of the water as it is being processed, as well as the contents of the water observed on a microscopic level. The operator usually works during regular business hours, and their position is hands on and may be dangerous.
