The City of Sparta is seeking a licensed Water Treatment Operator. In lieu of licensed candidates, the City will consider the placement of a trainee. Duties include conducting analyses in a laboratory setting, calculating chemical dosages and adding/adjusting chemical feeds, managing water influent and effluent flows, maintaining clear and accurate records, and the operation of computers, pumps, and hand tools.

 

Successful candidates will possess a high school diploma or GED, an active telephone (in order to be reached in emergency situations), and a valid driver’s license.
