Position Description


Founded in 1979, Astbury Water Technology, Inc. (Astbury) is a leading provider of wastewater and water utility operations, maintenance and management services. With four office-laboratory locations and four affiliated water and/or sewer utilities throughout Indiana, we have the resources to support customers with a full range of services. Our organization’s success is a direct result of dedicated and hardworking employees, high standards of service and ethics, and a unique offering of services and solutions. Astbury maintains an entrepreneurial business philosophy dedicated to serving the market’s needs.

We have an immediate job opening for a hands-on operator/manager to assist in the operations, maintenance and management of a water treatment and distribution system Astbury operates under contract in the vicinity of Plymouth, Indiana. This particular system, which is well-financed, serves a population of up to 2,240 and will be undergoing a multi-year modernization program.

To apply for this position, you must possess at least Indiana Water Treatment 2 (WT-2) and Distribution System Small (DSS) Licensure, though WT-3 and DSM Licensure (or above) is preferred. Recently lapsed licenses, or equivalent certification from other states will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Job Description:

The overarching goal of this job is to provide safe and aesthetically-pleasing drinking water to customers in a reliable and cost-effective manner. To ensure this goal is met, this position is responsible for directing and performing all operational functions associated with a water utility, except those related to billing and administration. The holder of this job will report to Astbury’s Regional Manager and the water utility’s governing personnel.

While a successful candidate for this position will need to possess at least some inclination for management, the small size of the utility requires a “hands on” approach and ability to work alongside–and lead–subcontractors and staff without direct supervision. A lot of time will be spent: working alongside the subcontractors and staff you are responsible for managing; directly performing repairs and maintenance in the field; and responding to emergency service calls and customer service matters.

Operational functions include iron filter flushing/maintenance and chemical feed pump maintenance; routine testing, sample collection and regulatory reporting; line flushing and system maintenance; and emergency services such as line breaks. While this position also requires customer complaint resolution and administering a preventative maintenance program, it does not involve managing or performing other administrative functions such as billing, collections, payment of invoices, and financial data organization and/or reporting. Functions such as laboratory analysis, accounting, and excavating and line repairs are subcontracted.



  1. Management of Staff: ensure that co-workers are cross-trained to provide redundancy; manage co-worker visitation and duties during vacations, sick, or other downtime; and ensure adequate safety training for subcontractors and co-workers.
  2. Supervise and/or Sometimes Perform: routine water quality testing and sample collection; installation and permitting of water mains and line taps; repair and/or replacement of fire hydrants, blow-offs, valves and valve boxes; flushing of water mains, fire hydrant flow testing, exercise of valves, and service of hydrants to maintain water quality; monitor and maintain wells, pumps, storage tank and water tower; respond to emergencies, including water main breaks and boil water advisories; share 24/7 on-call duties with co-workers; respond to customer complaints, including leaks and low water pressure; and Indiana 811 utility locates.
  3. Reporting and Records: ensure successful completion of regulatory reports for the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), and keep all reports and records organized and readily accessible; compile and report data for annual consumer confidence reports; develop and administer preventative maintenance program; read and update water distribution maps and as-built plans; conduct routine reconciliation of water production versus distribution (not possible before completion of modernization program); monitor daily water use and be alert for unusual changes which could indicate water main breaks, etc.; and operate computer to enter/retrieve data and prepare written and computerized records and reports.
  4. Communication: maintain frequent communication with Astbury Regional Manager; attend routine meetings between Astbury and water utility governing personnel, and provide written updates as necessary; and keep lines of communication open with regulatory authorities.
  5. Planning: engage in short and long-term planning to meet future service and regulatory needs; assist with annual budgeting; maintain an adequate inventory of equipment, tools and supplies; schedule periodic painting and maintenance of water tower; and maintain emergency response plans.
  6. Oversee subcontractors for: excavation, construction and repair services; supplies and materials; and other outside services.
  7. Safety: ensure compliance with OSHA safety guidelines for the workplace; arrange routine co-worker safety training for confined spaces and trench safety; monitor worksites for proper use of barricades and signage; and maintain all necessary safety equipment in working order.

Education/Experience/Skills Required

Candidates must possess at least two (2) years of experience operating WT-2 (or above) water treatment facilities and DSS (or above) water distribution systems and have knowledge of a variety of maintenance and repair-related tasks specific to electrical, mechanical and infrastructure components commonly located within these systems. Prior managerial experience relating to these systems, or a desire to develop managerial skills is required.

In addition to experience, candidates must have a high degree of flexibility and reliability. Astbury offers a wide array of services and prefers to keep employees somewhat interchangeable, so we are seeking job candidates who are capable of and interested in learning and performing a range of related tasks and projects. Also, in emergency situations, employees will sometimes need to be on-call nights, weekends and holidays.


Finally, special preference will be given to candidates possessing wastewater experience and/or licensure.

Education & Certifications:

At a minimum, a successful candidate must have the following:


Special preference is given to candidates that possess higher levels of education and/or water treatment/distribution licensure; superior written communication skills; confined space certification and knowledge of trenching and shoring safety standards; ability to operate construction equipment; proficiency with hand tools, tap machines, pavement saws, cutting torches and welders; electrical skills or certification; a history of managerial positions or responsibilities; and wastewater experience and/or licensure (or desire to obtain said experience and licensure).


Compensation will be commensurate with a candidate’s qualifications, experience and suitability. This position offers generous benefits, including paid time-off, health insurance, and retirement plans. Astbury is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to retaining talented and hard-working employees.
