In addition to increasing professional demands, utilities will soon be forced to replace many of their most experienced employees. During this decade, the water industry is expected to lose upwards of 50 percent of the licensed operator workforce due to retirements. Many of these retiring employees have worked at the same utility for most of their careers, and they will depart with decades of valuable institutional knowledge.
Water and wastewater utilities provide opportunities for a respected professional career in an important field. Those seeking to develop the skills necessary to enter the profession should consider the NJWA Apprenticeship Program.
