Hey just looked at your pro. What type of water treatment tech are you?
Thats my line as well.

I have been at the Bath Water Treatment Plant now for about 1.5 years, I manage the lab, sampling, sourcewater protection, and damned near everything else at the plant. It's a 4 MGD surface water plant with filtration, and 2 weeks ago came in second in the state for the best chlorinated drinking water. It's so good we just completed a comparison against Dasani, Aquafina, Evian, Patriot's Choice, and Poland Springs bottled water, and our results are very close.
Prior to that I worked for an Engineering Company and was their top troubleshooter/problem solver for Water, Wastewater, and Groundwater (Superfund cleanup). I managed 11 sites in 10 years, but they kept moving me further and further south, until I was traveling 200 miles one way every day to work. Then they hit me with the "we think you should sell your house" crap, so I bailed. I took a pay cut, but am home usually by 3PM, so plenty of free time, and I don't have a stress level anymore, so it was worth it. I have every water, wastewater, and groundwater license attainable (even some OSHA ones), which total 8, all top grade. I never planned on getting into this field, but now that I'm here I love it. Where else can you find a recessionproof job that's different every day and has twice the pay rate of anything else in the area, with 6 weeks of vacation to start?
