Kris’s Answer

Nationwide (in the united states) there is a great need for both water and wastewater operators, maintenance workers, lab technicians and engineers. Reliable water supply and quality wastewater treatment are essential services. Your state EPA should have a certification program for water and for wastewater. You can get started there. Some plants hire high school graduates and train them at the workplace. Large municipalities will have very different needs than rural areas. The size of the plants and complexity of equipment will vary widely.

It will be important to understand a little chemistry and math, but a college degree is not required. overall this is an admirable career choice.

Kris recommends the following next steps:

Look on your state EPA page to find certification training in water or wastewater.
Contact your local water plant and wastewater plant.
