Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts

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 THE LOS ANGELES COUNTY SANITATION DISTRICTS invites applications for the position of: Solid Waste Engineer (Engineering Associate II, III or Civil Engineer) 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 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 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. CONVERTING WASTE TO RESOURCES 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. BUDGET Overall, wastewater and solid waste management budgets for 2020-21 were $710 million and $172 million, respectively. Both systems provide their essential public services at some of the most competitive service charges in the country. *Initial salary placement will be based on the selected candidate's qualifications. A candidate hired at a level higher than Associate Engineer must be a registered Licensed Professional Engineer in the State of California. Solid Waste Department - Operations and Engineering JOB SUMMARY: The incumbent will provide technical support including engineering for refuse and gas system operations; develop and recommend engineering solutions for landfill operations; interact with other departments, sections, regulatory agencies and the public; perform other duties related to ensuring that the operating landfill is in compliance with permits and regulatory requirements; and oversee environmental control systems. Sample duties include: Developing fill plans for refuse placement, monthly tracking of incoming refuse, administering contracts related to maintenance, service and supplies, comprehensive budget analysis for tracking revenue and expenses, conducting complex studies related to environmental control systems and performing related duties as required. This position may be assigned similar projects at other solid waste management sites. The current vacancy is located at Scholl Canyon Landfill in Glendale, CA. 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.
