The City of Salem is looking for a Wastewater Treatment Shift Supervisor. This position is a Shift Supervisor with a rotational shift at a 24/7 wastewater plant. Wastewater prepossessing is done in two facilities, the Willow Lake Water Pollution Control Facility and the River Road Peak Wet Weather Treatment Facility. Willow Lake is the primary treatment facility for the City with a dry weather secondary treatment capacity of 40 mgd, a wet weather secondary treatment capacity of 70 mgd, and a peak wet weather capacity of 155 mgd. It can be operated in trickling filter/activated sludge, conventional air activated sludge and in a combination of both processes plus selective treatment based on flow and load fluctuations. Effluent is disinfected with liquid hypochlorite and de-chlorinated with sodium bisulfite. Solids handling consists of mesophilic anaerobic digestion. Class B biosolids are re-used through land application as liquid, belt filter press, and centrifuge cake products. The River Road Peak Wet Weather Treatment Facility is a high rate, physical chemical ballasted flocculation facility with ultra-violet disinfection. This facility is operated only when flows at the Willow Lake Facility are above 70 mgd. Operation of this remote facility is permitted for use to prevent sanitary sewer overflows associated with wet weather. The Willow Lake Treatment Facility operates as a 24/7, 365 day facility. This position will be responsible for shift supervisory duties to ensure work standards and policies are implemented and followed, employee management, coordination of plant crews and other operational processes, a safe work environment, inventory maintenance, equipment repairs or plant maintenance needs, research and analyze information, and develop reports and other materials as needed. The ideal candidate will demonstrate wastewater treatment plant and project management experience, knowledge of technical plant operations and regulations, possess supervisory and excellent communication skills, ability to work collaboratively in a team environment, and rotate shifts (day, swing, night) on a quarterly basis.
