Why a career in water and wastewater treatment?

Making an impact!

Everyone needs clean water- for drinking, cooking, cleaning, bathing….. even to flush the toilet! Providing high quality water to your community allows you to make a significant impact not only on the environment, but in the lives of your neighbors, family, and friends. The ability to turn on your faucet knowing that clean water will always come out is a luxury that we have come to expect.

State of the art technology!

Like all things, the way we treat our water changes with the times. Much of the process involves using up-to-date technology that allows you to learn a variety of digital platforms. This assists us in keeping a treatment facility running efficiently and accurately in order to meet compliance standards that are put in place for producing a safe product.

Career Stability!

The need for clean water will never go away, which makes this one of the most recession-proof careers out there. Woodard & Curran provides the chance to grow and develop a life-long career through hands-on learning, assistance and rewards for achieving treatment licenses, additional continuing education in the industry, and opportunities for advancement… all the way from intern to senior level managers!


What will you be doing at Woodard & Curran?


The successful candidate will operate our wastewater treatment plant, pump stations and related equipment, by taking responsibility of the operations and maintenance in their everyday tasks. You will participate in on-call rotations that may include weekends, holidays and times of inclement weather, to respond to emergency situations.
