Managing Water Supply, Wastewater and Rainwater
Water Supply from the spring, the well, the river or other resources has to be treated, pumped, stored and delivered to households, farmland and industry. That is the job of a water supply engineering technician.
Wastewater from households and industry must be treated. Rainwater management and sludge treatment as well as reuse of wastewater are duties of an wastewater engineering technician.
Water Technicians work on site, in labs, in process control rooms and workshops.
A job with future - local, needed and important - 3 out of 4 jobs in the world depend on water. (UN-World Water Report 2017)
