The Environmental Technology Department provides training for operators, utility workers, environmental technicians, and other workers that make up the field of Public Works. Cities, counties, and other public and private entities have needs for clean drinking water, well maintained streets and parks, wastewater treatment facilities, and maintenance of pipes, pumps, and storage facilities.
This program provides education to meet the employment needs of workers in both the public and private systems. Students will also have knowledge of city government and infrastructure, and equipment maintenance.
The Department offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree in Water, Environment and Technology, as well as four Short-Term certificates in Public Works, Wastewater Technology, Drinking Water, and Advanced Water Technology.
