Welcome to the WWIP website! This program is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to learn about the water and wastewater industry. If you have or will be recently graduating high school and you aren’t sure where to go from there – this is the program for you! If you are already in college and you are considering your future after – this is the program for you! If you have recently returned from serving our country and are trying to determine your next steps – this is the program for you!
This approximately 9 week summer internship program is designed to introduce you to the career opportunities in the water industry. The program will run from June through August each summer. What we do each and every day is so very important to the lives of our neighbors and our families. We provide clean drinking water, and we remove the sanitary or “gray” water from homes and businesses. That sanitary water is then filtered, treated and cleaned so that it can be recycled back into the water system. The water and wastewater industry completes the water cycle to ensure healthy lives for both humans and aquafauna in our neighborhoods and towns.
Throughout the course of this program you will be introduced to careers in the trades, in environmental sciences, technology and GIS systems and in business administration. We have career paths for those who like to be outside and work with their hands, for those who want to create GIS mapping systems, for those who love numbers and accounting and for folks interested in chemistry and environmental impacts.
If you think this is the program for you, explore our menus and you’ll be ready to go! Make sure to explore the testimonials page to hear what former interns have said about the program!
