Wastewater Treatment Plant Operators and Technicians

Employment in this field is expected to grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).┬áDespite the prediction for average growth, job opportunities will be excellent. The number of job applicants in this field is generally low due to the unclean and physically demanding nature of the work. This relative lack of competition means that workers can enter the field with ease, providing they have adequate training and experience.
