The City of Santa Rosa is seeking qualified individuals to apply for Utility Systems Operator I. This is the entry level class in the Utility System Operator series. This class is flexibly staffed with Utility System Operator II, and incumbents are provided hands on opportunities to acquire the technical knowledge and skills needed for promotion through extensive and systematic on-the-job training.
The USO I rotates through all seven operational areas during the first year of employment. Under close supervision, incumbents in this class perform the tasks necessary to construct, maintain and operate the Water Delivery and Wastewater Collection systems of the Water Department as they rotate through each of the department's field crews. Successful candidates will receive extensive training in Leak Repair, General Construction, Weekend Operations Collection Cleaning, Inflow & Infiltration, Water Distribution, and Meter Shop. The opportunity to promote to USO II occurs once an incumbent completes the five (5) year apprenticeship program and meets additional established criteria.
