Pay Range:

The CBJ treatment system is comprised of three Publically Owned Treatment Works (POTW), with over 140 miles of mainline collections and 45 lift stations, servicing a diversity of domestic, industrial, and marine clients.  Our waste treatment system is vital to our community, keeping our pristine and valuable fisheries and marine systems intact and productive.

After several decades of service, our complex and sprawling facilities are now undergoing a series of major technological upgrades and refits.  Our goal is to usher the CBJ Utility into an era of advanced SCADA-controlled collections and treatment automation combined with integrated industrial source controls.

The successful candidate for this position will be well qualified to manage the operations of each of our three POTWs, using proactive approaches to maintain and exceed our regulatory expectations and protect our valuable receiving waters.  The candidate will also use their creative, innovative, and technological skills to assist us in automating and controlling our systems for best efficiency and resilience.  A successful candidate will also have the following:

  • Ability to prepare and submit operational compliance reports and communication letters to various local, state and federal authorities relating to the operations of the waste water treatment plant.
  • Ability to lead, train, and inspire the Utility Team.
  • Ability to ensure data-driven decision making in the Team’s operations.
  • Proficient in using email, Word documents, and spreadsheets.
  • Knowledge of SCADA systems design and operation.
  • Ability to work cooperatively with others in a Municipal Public Works organization.
  • Knowledge and experience with supervising staff in a union environment.

NOTE: This position must regularly lift and/or move up to 10 pounds, frequently lift and/or move up to 25 pounds and occasionally lift and/or move up to 50 pounds. Specific vision abilities required include close vision, distance vision, and ability to adjust focus. For more physical, Mental, and Environmental Conditions & Requirements please request the official Position Description by calling Chad Gubala at (907) 586-0393.


Working within the CBJ Utility Team is diverse and dynamic with a small dedicated group providing critical services to the Juneau Community.  Most of our waste water plant operators work extended 4 day work weeks, with managers and supervisors and admins typically working a standard five day schedule, with occasional emergency response callings and after-hours municipal meetings.  Under our current configuration, there is emphasis on a hands-on approach to plant operations.  However,

we expect our plant dynamics to change to a more automated environment, allowing for greater efficiency, ease of operations and a data-driven management approach.


This position works (Monday through Friday) 8am – 4:30pm. This position also requires recalls for emergencies and weather events.  While the base of operations for this position is at the Mendenhall Wastewater Treatment Facility, there is work required in and around the Juneau-Douglas and Auke Bay Wastewater Treatment facilities.
