• Ongoing development of source water quality program information and project work using Geographic Information Systems and other data analysis and visualization IT tools.
• Work with federal, state and local agencies, other water and wastewater utilities, businesses, and non-governmental organizations to encourage partnership in water quality-related projects and efforts. Develop project goals that provide mutual benefits to participants and support equitable cost-sharing, lead and participate in project meetings and resolve conflicts while maintaining partners’ commitments to support project assignments and costs.
• As the primary water quality SME for Utilities’ Water Resource Management, develop, maintain and leverage positive relationships with external programs and agencies that help meet Utilities’ goals for water quality protection. Programs and related areas of interest include stormwater and drainage planning, land conservation, non-point source pollution management, land use planning and development.

Why should you apply? You’ll use your professional environmental experience and talents to serve your community, as this is a unique opportunity to be Utilities’ subject matter expert on source water protection. You’ll be responsible for assessing Utilities’ extensive water collection and conveyance system and operations and further developing and implementing programmatic efforts to manage related risks to protect source water quantity and quality. You’ll surround yourself with dedicated and knowledgeable water resource engineers and planners, skilled system operators, a knowledgeable legal team, and environmental regulatory specialists to reach goals you can’t reach by yourself. You’ll dig deep into water resources management and related regulations and your professional network to achieve environmental, community, and business objectives.
