- 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.

WHAT IS IT LIKE TO WORK ON OUR TEAM
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.
WORKING HOURS AND LOCATION
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.
