Water Technicians may work on the supply of water, or the treatment of waste water, or on both simultaneously or sequentially.
Water Supply Engineering Technicians work in municipal and industrial water supply companies. They carry out their work independently on the basis of technical documents and rules as well as on legal bases. Water Supply Technicians procure information, plan and coordinate their work. They document their services and take measures to ensure quality assurance, safety, health and environmental protection at work.
Whether working with water support or waste water treatment, the role of the Water Technician is to observe, identify, protocol, report, maintain, control and repair equipment and processes throughout the plant and the networks. For this purpose, they must have knowledge and expertise in mechanics, chemistry, biology, electrical, automation and environmental protection. Above all, health and safety matters most.
