Job Description

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!


Who We Are Looking For:

We are looking for summer interns for our water treatment facility in Defiance, Missouri.

We are looking for learning-focused individuals who are interested in exploring a career in the water/wastewater treatment industry. We will closely mentor anyone in the Maintenance, Science, Engineering and/or Environmental Field that has an interest in water and wastewater treatment while providing them an invaluable opportunity to shadow our skilled staff on-site at one of our projects. It is our goal for you to be successful, and to that end we will provide a fulfilling and rewarding internship providing beneficial hands-on experience.

What will you be doing at Woodard & Curran?

Our Operation and Maintenance Intern will work closely with our skilled Staff at their project to learn and understand what is involved with the daily operation and maintenance of a water/wastewater treatment facility. Duties will vary at each Project, but this is a great opportunity to gain hands-on plant experience while being exposed to the general aspects of administration, compliance, finance, operation & maintenance, safety, technology, and treatment.

Our internships are paid positions and you will be reporting on-site at a treatment facility project. We will expect you to take part in regular safety training, team meetings, and truly become part of our Team.
