Water and Wastewater Career Pathways: Connecting People to Water Industry Jobs in the Bay Area

Bay Area Community College Consortium Members,

The San Francisco Bay Center of Excellence for Labor Market Research (COE) and the Deputy Sector Navigator for Agriculture, Water and Environmental Technologies (AGWET) for the Bay Area Community Colleges worked with BAYWORK and Jewish Vocational Services to survey water and wastewater agencies and utilities in six Bay Area counties. 43 out of the 77 agencies and utilities that were identified by BAYWORK in the six-county region responded to the survey.

This new report, titled Water and Wastewater Career Pathways: Connecting People to Water Industry Jobs in the Bay Area identifies the workforce needs of employers related to nine mission-critical occupations. The report is concerned with the technical-level segment of the workforce, also called the ‘skilled trades’ or ‘mission critical’ careers, which are closely aligned with community college education programs.

In addition, you can access links to the occupational profiles for the most mission critical positions – Electronic Maintenance Tech/Instrument Tech, Mechanic/Machinist, and Electrician.
This information is also posted at baccc.net.

Sincerely,

David Esmaili, DSN for Agriculture, Water and Environmental Technologies (AWET)
