Alabama, Florida and Georgia are in court fighting over it. Western States like Arizona, Colorado and California have a shortage of it. It has caused millions of dollars of damage in the Midwest. What is it? -Water. Clean water is a hot issue across the US because it is essential life and our economy. Many areas of the US are struggling to find more sources of water to meet the demand of their growing populations. Yet most job seekers are unaware of the potential jobs available in protecting this vital resource. Here are some reasons why job seekers should consider a career in the water industry:
High Number of Job Openings: Like other utility companies, water companies and engineering consultants are faced with a large number of retirements in their engineering, operations and maintenance ranks. This exodus is not just a loss of numbers but also a loss of institutional knowledge (Knowledge Capital). They will need well trained people to step into the open positions.
High Investment Potential: It is well publicized that our country’s water infrastructure needs at least $ 1 trillion dollars of investment to get it modern standards. While this level of investment will not happen at once, governments, water authorities and politicians know the work needs to be done and projects will create well paying jobs. One of the hottest areas of water jobs will be flood and storm water management.
Increased Regulations: Believe or not, increased regulatory standards are good in some cases because they provide standards to protect the water supply from potential threats such as terrorism and pollution. The water industry is also entering into “Smart Grid” technology with the deployment of high tech water meters and quality monitors.
Low numbers of trained professionals: The retirements of “baby boomers” will leave a wealth of job opportunities but a dearth of knowledge in some geographic areas. Trained and experienced water professionals who choose to move into the areas will have good prospects for jobs.
