Jobs with benefits: Helping people, helping the environment

Wastewater operator. It sounds like a dirty job, but it’s more about using science, collecting data and managing a system. It’s also a vital job for human and environmental health. Wastewater operators make sure water flushed from toilets, sinks, bathtubs, washing machines – all the water from homes and businesses – is cleaned up enough to be discharged to a lake or river.

Small towns. Big cities. Communities across Minnesota are looking for wastewater operators, people who like science, like variety, like a steady job and like making a difference. These are jobs with benefits, including helping people and helping the environment.

You may qualify for this job through:

  • On-the-job training
  • 2-year program at Vermillion Community College or St. Cloud Technical College
  • 4-year degree in chemistry at any accredited college
