The role of a water industry operator is without a doubt at the forefront of both public health and environmental protection. The delivery of safe drinking water and the treatment of wastewater to specification (discharge or recycling) demands a competent operator workforce to appropriately manage water quality safety risks and importantly ensure that customer / community expectations are met.

To assist the Australian Water Industry to best manage operator workforce competency this study aims to identify the key operator competencies required or that contribute to fulfilling this responsibility and the value gained from investing in programs to develop, support and continually grow operator competency.
