Employees at this level receive only occasional instruction or assistance as new or unusual situations arise and are fully aware of the operating procedures and policies of the work unit.

Work is performed under the general supervision of the Water System Manager and within a framework of established procedures. Employees in higher classifications may provide functional supervision.
