County Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County

OUR MISSION

The Sanitation Districts protect public health and the environment through innovative and cost-effective wastewater and solid waste management, and in doing, so convert waste into resources such as recycled water, energy and recycled materials.

ORGANIZATION

The Sanitation Districts function on a regional scale and consist of 24 independent special districts serving about 5.5 million people in Los Angeles County.  The service area covers approximately 824 square miles and encompasses 78 cities and unincorporated territory within the county.

GETTING THE JOB DONE

The Sanitation Districts were created in 1923 when a significant number of cities were forming and it was clear that managing wastewater on a regional scale made sense.  The Sanitation Districts' purpose was to construct, operate, and maintain facilities that collect, treat, recycle, and dispose of domestic and industrial wastewater.  Individual districts operate and maintain the district-owned collection systems. Cities and unincorporated areas within a district are responsible for their smaller local collection systems.

Cities and unincorporated parts of the county are also responsible for the collection of solid waste.  In the 1950s, it became apparent that solid waste management would benefit from a regional approach.  At that time, the Sanitation Districts were given the responsibility to provide for the management of collected solid waste, including disposal and transfer operations, and materials and energy recovery.

To maximize efficiency and reduce costs, the 24 Sanitation Districts work cooperatively under a Joint Administration Agreement with one administrative staff headquartered near the City of Whittier.  Each Sanitation District has a Board of Directors consisting of the mayor of each city and the Chair of the Board of Supervisors for unincorporated territory.  Each Sanitation District pays its proportionate share of joint administrative costs

JOB POSTING NOTICE OF EXTERNAL RECRUITMENT SELECTION#RQ-109-19 The Sanitation Districts function on a regional scale and consist of 24 independent special districts serving approximately 5.6 million people in Los Angeles County. The service area covers approximately 824 square miles and encompasses 78 cities and unincorporated territory within the county. The Sanitation Districts were created in 1923 when a significant number of cities were forming and it was clear that managing wastewater on a regional scale made sense. The Sanitation Districts' purpose was to construct, operate, and maintain facilities that collect, treat, recycle, and dispose of domestic, commercial and industrial wastewater. Individual districts operate and maintain the Sanitation District-owned collection systems. Cities and unincorporated areas within the district are responsible for their smaller local collection systems. Cities and unincorporated parts of the county are also responsible for the collection of solid waste. In the 1950s, it became apparent that solid waste management would benefit from a regional approach. At that time, the Sanitation Districts were given the responsibility to provide for the management of collected solid waste, including disposal and transfer operations, and materials and energy recovery. To maximize efficiency and reduce costs, the 24 Sanitation Districts work cooperatively under a Joint Administration Agreement with one administrative staff headquartered near the City of Whittier. Each Sanitation District has a Board of Directors, consisting of the mayor of each city and the Chair of the County Board of Supervisors for unincorporated territory. Each Sanitation District pays its proportionate share of joint administrative costs. Approximately 1,400 miles of sewers, 48 active pumping plants, and 11 wastewater treatment plants convey and treat over half the wastewater in Los Angeles County. The Sanitation Districts' solid waste management sites similarly provide about one-fourth of the countywide solid waste management needs. The Sanitation Districts operate two sanitary landfills, three landfill energy recovery facilities, one recycle center, and three materials recovery/transfer facilities, and participate in the operation of two refuse-to- energy facilities. The Sanitation Districts are innovators in the production of green energy and water recycling. Approximately 120 megawatts of electricity, enough to supply the needs of about 120,000 homes, are created in the Sanitation Districts' wastewater and solid waste operations. Sanitation Districts' water reclamation plants produce approximately 150 million gallons per day of recycled water that can be safely used for irrigation and other uses. The majority of this recycled water is beneficially reused and is enough to replace the water used by over 500,000 Southern California families. ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS: The incumbent will perform work involving air quality engineering, focusing on regulatory compliance and enforcement. Specific areas of work may include: preparing regulatory permit applications (along with supporting work such as air dispersion modeling and health risk assessment preparation), regulatory correspondence, issue analysis memoranda and technical reports; developing qualification criteria, scope of work, and contractual language for retaining engineering consultants and emissions testing firms; representing the Sanitation Districts at public hearings and meetings with regulatory staff, elected officials and coalition members; supportingfield operations; and performing other duties as required. MINIMUM QUALIFICATIONS Applicants must possess a valid California Class C driver license -AND - Option A : A bachelor's degree and master's degree both in a pertinent engineering discipline from an accredited and recognized college or university; Option B: A bachelor's degree from an accredited and recognized college or university in a related science with an Engineer-In-Training Certificate and a master's degree from an accredited and recognized college or university in a pertinent engineering discipline; Option C : Two years of professional engineering experience subsequent to earning a bachelor's degree in engineering from an accredited and recognized college or university. DESIRABLE QUALIFICATIONS: Completion of 12 units of upper division/graduate level air quality, wastewater and solid wastemanagementrelated courses AND two years of air quality related experience is desirable. Candidates with a master's degree in engineering and a Professional Engineering license (P.E.) are preferred.
