ABOUT THE DISTRICT: Three Valleys (the District) is a government agency that was formed by a vote of the people in 1950. It is one of the twenty-six member agencies of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) that is authorized to deliver wholesale water supplies from the Colorado River and northern California. The District gets its name from the three areas that it serves: the Pomona, Walnut and East San Gabriel Valleys. There are 14 cities and water agencies that are within the District’s service area, which covers an area of 133 square miles and a population of 525,000. The District’s annual budget is about $64 million, with most of the total involved in the purchase and sale of water. A publicly elected, seven-member Board of Directors presides over the District.

ABOUT THE POSITION: There are currently thirteen (13) employees who operate the District's T-5/D-4 rated water treatment plant (25 million gallons per day) and transmission system. There are an additional twelve employees who work in the administrative offices. The Instrumentation/Electrical System Operator (IESO) will be required to report directly to the Operations Supervisors, who in turn report to the Water Operations Manager. The IESO will perform mostly independent work and have a fairly wide range of duties, particularly in plant-related mechanical maintenance and the operation of a SCADA system. Therefore, safety knowledge is a critical quality for the person in this position.

THE IDEAL IESO: The ideal candidate will enjoy working in a smaller environment with a supportive and professional team of coworkers. They will be self-initiated, self-reliant, and possess broad skills in the field of water treatment, facilities maintenance and instrumentation. They will readily take ownership of assignments, be dedicated to their chosen field and be willing to do whatever it takes to get a job done. They will show respect for all business contacts, even when those contacts have differing views and abilities. They should have a sense of humor, enjoy the excitement of working with multiple projects and show good judgment in planning, prioritizing and facilitating project assignments. They will abide by all safety rules and regulations per District policy guidelines.

POSITION QUALIFICATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS: Two years of experience with electrical and maintenance related activities for a public/private water facility, SCADA/PLC programming experience and supplemental training is required. Wonderware software experience is highly desired. Must be able to use, wear and maintain an assigned respirator. Must possess a valid California Class "C" driver's license.

DISTRICT BENEFITS: Three Valleys offers an excellent benefits package, including PERS 2%@62 retirement (2%@55 for PERS Classic employees), medical (90%-100% District-paid premiums for employee/dependents), dental and vision (100% paid premiums), medical reimbursement, life insurance, 96 hours of sick leave per year, 80 hours of vacation leave per year, 12 annual paid holidays.
