Division of Compliance Assistance

Wastewater treatment plant operators are responsible for the purification of wastewater. They remove harmful organisms, solid wastes and toxic chemicals (such as lead and mercury) from domestic and industrial wastewater. They then return the treated water to the rivers, streams and other bodies of water. Without well-trained water and wastewater operators, the health of Kentucky's people and bodies of water would be greatly compromised.
