The goal of wastewater management is to clean and protect water. This means that water must be clean enough so that it can be used by people for drinking and washing, and by industry for commercial purposes. It also must be clean enough to release into oceans, lakes, and rivers after it has been used. 

Role of a Waste Water Facility Manager

A waste water facility manager is responsible for the overall operations within a water treatment facility. Duties typically include worker supervision, enforcing plant procedures and policies, conducting performance reviews, and overseeing training programs. Water Facility managers must have valid state certification. A water facility manager oversees all of a plant’s functions, including water storage, treatment and delivery operations. Due to strict state and federal regulations in water treatment, management positions require experience, education and certification.  The Master Waste Water Management certification is not restricted to water treatment plant operations.
