CITY OF VENTURA, CA
501 Poli Street, Ventura, California 93001, USA
Description The City of Ventura is hiring! We have an immediate vacancy for a Principal Civil Engineer with the VenturaWaterPure Program. Come join our team as we align our workforce to better serve our community together - they're counting on us. We are accepting applications for the position of Principal Civil Engineer . The Principal Civil Engineer is part of the VenturaWaterPure program and will be a vital part of the team to ensure program success. The position will work under general direction of the VenturaWaterPure Program Director and will perform difficult and responsible administrative, technical, and civil engineering work related to the management and supervision of the design and delivery of the VenturaWaterPure project. The Principal Civil Engineer will provide project management assistance during the design and construction phases for the projects associated with the VenturaWaterPure Program, which will augment the local water supply through the indirect and potentially direct potable reuse. Infrastructure projects would include but are not limited to: An Advanced Water Purification Facility (AWPF) including use of Ozone, Biological Activated Carbon Filtration, Ultrafiltration, Reverse Osmosis, Ultra Violet Disinfection and Advanced Oxidation processes; Pipelines to support effluent flows between the Ventura Water Reclamation Facility (VWRF), AWPF, and groundwater injection facilities; Groundwater injection and extraction facilities; Ocean outfall for disposal of RO concentrate; and, upgrades at the VWRF. The Ideal Candidate : Demonstrates a strong background in project management. Has performed advanced technical civil engineering work. Experience working with water/wastewater related engineering projects desirable. Utilizes a team approach to problem solving. Understands the techniques of managing, scheduling, and monitoring multiple projects simultaneously to ensure timely completion within budget. Has a proven track record of project management experience that demonstrates ability to identify and resolve project issues. Possesses excellent oral and written communication skills. This position is designated as "at-will", serving at the pleasure of the appointing authority, and subject to discharge without cause and right of appeal. VenturaWaterPure Ventura is one of biggest cities in California to rely solely on local water supplies. Rainfall feeds Ventura River, Lake Casitas and groundwater basins to meet all community needs. But prolonged drought and regulations have reduced the local water supply. Without additional supply, Ventura's water needs will outpace its supply by 20% to 30% as early as 2035. After a decade of study and analysis, the City proposes two solutions: VenturaWaterPure and the State Water Interconnection Project. Combined, the projects would diversify Ventura's water supply; secure a new, locally owned water source; meet regulatory requirements; improve water quality; and meet future water supply needs. The proposed VenturaWaterPure Project would divert, treat and re-use water that is currently discharged into the Santa Clara River Estuary. A new advanced water treatment facility would treat water to its purist form, creating a new, locally owned supply that is not dependent on rainfall. The main feature of VenturaWaterPure would be a new advanced water purification facility. Like other active potable reuse projects throughout California and the nation, it will utilize a proven multi-stage treatment process to produce a reliable, high-quality, and local water resource that is independent from rainfall or outside agreements. Other components of the project include a network of pipelines, a groundwater injection/extraction system, a concentrate discharge facility, and freshwater treatment wetlands.
