Water System Operations
Clean water is essential for everyday life. Water is pumped from wells, rivers, streams and reservoirs to water treatment plants, where it is treated and distributed to customers. Water System Operators treat water so that it is safe to drink. Operators read, interpret, and adjust meters and gauges to make sure that plant equipment and processes are working properly. Operators control chemical-feeding devices, take samples of the water or wastewater, perform chemical and biological laboratory analyses, and adjust the amounts of chemicals, such as chlorine, in the water. They employ a variety of instruments to sample and measure water quality, and they use common hand and power tools to make repairs to valves, pumps, and other equipment.
