Date:5/4/2010

As Drinking Water Week continues, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) is urging students and job seekers to explore the water sector to discover careers that are both central to public health and the environment, and personally and professionally rewarding.

Denver, CO (Vocus) May 4, 2010 -- As Drinking Water Week continues, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) is urging students and job seekers to explore the water sector to discover careers that are both central to public health and the environment, and personally and professionally rewarding.

"We rely on safe, sustainable water supplies for everything from drinking to fire protection to public health and sanitation,” said Craig Woolard, AWWA president. "Choosing to work for water is choosing to serve both your community and the environment. It's an exciting time to become part of the water workforce, and there are excellent opportunities available.”

Career opportunities are available for almost every skill set; workforce shortages are projected for treatment plant operators, distribution system mechanics, engineers, scientists and many other positions from water source to tap.

For more information individuals can view the Water Sector Competency Model, developed by AWWA, the Water Environment Federation, the US Department of Labor and US Environmental Protection Agency. It defines the necessary knowledge, skills, and abilities for prospective water professionals and encourages careers in the water sector. The competency model is available on the Department of Labor's CareerOneStop website.
