The fundamental reason this classification exists is to perform daily monitoring and control of staffed and non-staffed water works facilities through the operation of the Water Supply Division's central computer system called Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA). Incumbents routinely interact and cross-train with Water Distribution and Customer Service Divisions. Incumbents monitor citywide water usage and communicate production and pumping needs among the City's water treatment and remote water facilities. Incumbents are also responsible for maintaining operational set points and alarm levels, as directed by a Water Supply Supervisor. Work assignments are made by a Water Supply Supervisor, through written or oral instructions. Work is reviewed for results in meeting the operating requirements of the system.
