2022 Testimonials

“I participated in the WWIP during the summer of 2022. It was a really unique and enlightening experience seeing how much care and knowledge goes into water and wastewater operations. The internship moved me so much I applied for a job in water quality at one of the municipalities, and I’m enjoying the opportunity to continue along in the field!”

Alexa, Water Quality Trainee at North Wales Water Authority

“The internship program helped expose me to multiple career options with hands on experience in the environmental field. I was able to secure a good job while doing good work for the community. I met many experts in the field, made valuable contacts, received career guidance, and got an inside look into both the drinking and wastewater industries. I entered the program about to graduate with an associate degree in environmental science. The internship helped me define what that means as a career and led to multiple job opportunities in the industry.”

“The Water & Wastewater Internship Program was a fantastic opportunity that made me consider potential careers I would’ve never considered without this program. I got to work with dozens of wonderful people that expertly explained every step of the water & wastewater processes. It was very cool to see behind the curtain and understand all that it takes to make sure your taps work and your toilet flushes.”
