Under general supervision, organize, oversee, and supervise various contract work; perform a wide variety of skilled, journey-level duties in leading, overseeing and participating in the work of a crew responsible for performing installation, maintenance, repair and servicing of City’s wastewater collection and transmission system; and perform related work as assigned.

Wastewater Utility Specialist I is the entry-level class. Initially under direct supervision, incumbents learn the City’s Sanitary Sewer Management Plan and perform a variety of semi-skilled and skilled duties in the construction, installation, maintenance and repair of equipment, machinery and devices used in the operation of the streets, parks, beaches, open spaces, facilities, storm drains, water storage and distri­bution, and wastewater collection and transmission systems. Trades areas covered by this class include mechan­ical maintenance and repair of industrial equipment, components and machinery; plumb­ing and pipe fitting; welding; industrial electrical systems, maintenance and repair; and the installa­tion, trouble­shoot­ing and repair of electronic control systems. This class is alternately staffed with Wastewater Utility Specialist II, and incum­bents may advance to the higher level after gaining experience and demon­strating proficiency that meet the qualifications for the higher-level class.

Wastewater Utility Specialist II is the full journey-level class in this series. Under general supervision, incumb­ents take ownership of all responsibilities listed in the City’s Sanitary Sewer Management Plan and perform the full range of assigned duties. This class differs from the lower-level class in the skill level required in all of the classes’ craft areas, and the complexity of assigned projects based on know­­ledge of the City’s equipment, systems, standards and procedures. Assign­ments vary, may encompass a variety of tasks, seldom require detailed instructions, and require sound judgment and initiative.
