Our water utility is successful because of our people. We rely on a variety of skills provided by our talented employees to meet different needs. Our Superintendent doubles as our engineer. Our administrative staff provide customer service and perform utility billing and full service accounting functions. Our water operators bring technical expertise and perform duties as varied as meter reading, water testing, reservoir maintenance, pump and heavy equipment operation and utility construction.
Since Rainbow works with a number of smaller water systems, we may occasionally advertise for a part-time position open with one of our partners. Water operators require state certification based on the size and complexity of the water system, and any required certifications will be listed in the job description. More information about the state certification levels can be found here.
