To help you prepare for a career in water treatment, the Association of Water Technologies (AWT) created the Student Education and Enhancement Development (SEED) Program.
Industrial facilities require water treatment of various mechanical systems to control scale, corrosion, and microbiological fouling. Each facility has specific needs — engineering, chemistry, equipment, analytical testing, and training — all of which must be balanced by the water technology provider. Successful water treatment programs help extend equipment life, maximize energy efficiency, and reduce downtime.
Are you curious, analytical, love problem solving, and have a technical degree such as chemistry, engineering, biology, or environmental science? If so, you already have the stepping stones for entering the water treatment field. Watch this video to learn more about what skills are needed in this field:
