The actual type of work is very satisfying however the pay is well below industry standards. There is a state pension program and the benefits are good but all pay scales for skilled positions need to be adjusted.

I enjoyed working at Newport News work works through a summer program. I learn a lot about how the water supply comes in and how to deal with problems with the water system of Newport News.
Water Treatment Operator in Newport News, VA
on December 12, 2018
Facilities is poorly managed. From the Division manager to the Plants Manager, neither have the management skills equal to the position. This cold be remedied if they cared to listen from the continuous constructive criticism. Operations has been engineered out of the plants and it is widely know automation would be the SOP if allowed by the state. I was engineered in the latest treatment plant but disallowed by the EPA. Hard to hide your opinion on the matter when it is public record and the staff is show open disdain.
