WHAT IS AN OPERATOR
Ask yourself these questions and see how an operator would answer them:
Do you want a job that challenges you?
An operator researches ideas and solves problems.
Do you want to be an investigator?
Operators investigate and discover the culprit of equipment malfunctions or plant process inefficiencies.
Do you enjoy fixing things?
Equipment can break down, so operators work with a variety of equipment and tools to fix, replace, rebuild or invent things.
Do you want to work outside, or at a desk, in a laboratory or a mechanical shop? Do you want to work with your hands or with your mind?
As an operator, you will do all of it. Your job is to operate a wastewater treatment plant and all that it entails. Each day you may do something different. You will experience what it is like to be a biologist, a chemist, an engineer, a mechanic, a regulator, a landscaper, an analyst, and much more.
Operators are not just workers; we are active participants in a venture that protects public health and preserves natural resources. We clean, we check, we fix, we investigate and we make decisions to ensure the plant and its processes are making the best quality of water possible. It is a job that is both physically and mentally demanding, yet rewarding. There is always a laugh to be had and something new to do. It is not just a job, it’s a career.
