Job Description

GENERAL PURPOSE

Collection System Operator I and II:

Under general supervision, performs semi-skilled and skilled tasks in the construction, installation, servicing, repair, and maintenance of the Agency's wastewater collection, water, reclaimed water and transmission systems and related facilities; locates and repairs leaks in the water/wastewater main lines, lift stations, and related facilities and equipment; operates light, medium, and heavy-duty motorized equip­ment; operates closed-circuit television inspection camera and GPS-related equipment; and performs related duties as assigned.

DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTICS:

Collection System Operator I:

Collection System Operator I is the entry-level class. Initially under direct supervision, incumbents learn and perform a variety of routine duties in the construction, installation, repair, and maintenance of wastewater collection lines, mains and facilities. This class is alternately staffed with Collection System Operator II, and incumbents may advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demonstrating proficiency that meet the qualifications for the higher-level class.

Employees in this class typically report to a Collection System Supervisor.  

Collection System Operator II:

Collection System Operator II is the skilled, journey-level class in this series. Under general supervision, incumbents perform the full range of assigned duties with independence and using sound judgment. Work requires the knowledgeable application of a wide variety of installation, maintenance, and repair methods and practices, carried out in conformance with Agency standards and procedures, as well as applicable safety and regulatory requirements. This class differs from Collection System Operator I in the skill level required, the incumbent's knowledge of the Agency's system, and the ability to operate the more specialized equipment.  

Employees in this class typically report to a Collection System Supervisor.
