The American Water Works Association (AWWA) worked with its industry membership to identify the occupation-specific competencies required for workers in the water sector. In collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water and the Water Environment Federation (WEF), the results of those efforts were formatted into a competency model using the framework provided by the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA). The resulting model for the water sector, which depicts the core competencies required for field staff and operators, will be a resource for workforce developers and educators.
