The East Bay Municipal Utility District's (EBMUD's) Water Supply Engineering Section is seeking an Assistant Engineer who is a motivated and energetic team player with experience in computer simulations, hydrologic and statistical analyses, field investigations, and evaluation of municipal water structures and facilities.

The Water Supply Engineering Section is within EBMUD's Water Operations Department and is primarily responsible for:
Forecasting the water supply and demand for the coming year to guide planning, scheduling, budgeting, and decision-making processes.
Scheduling operations of EBMUD's water supply reservoirs, aqueducts, and pumping plants to maximize yield and conform to water rights and contractual agreements.
Collecting, analyzing, distributing, and archiving EBMUD's official records on reservoir operation, hydrological data, water production, and power generation.

The Assistant Engineer routinely performs a variety of engineering analyses in such diverse areas as hydraulics, hydrology, and statistics related to the planning, design, and operation of water supply facilities. Successful performance requires the ability to work independently on assigned projects and provide reports with quality-checked numerical values that are free of errors and omissions.

Typical responsibilities include:
Using the Water Supply System Operation Model, a Microsoft Excel-based mass- balance model, which uses Visual Basic code integrated with EBMUD's database of historical hydrological data to project water supply.
Forecasting hydrologic and water supply conditions to schedule operations, including the rate and timing of reservoir releases.
Coordinating facility outages that impact the water supply system operations.
Scheduling the transfer of water from the Mokelumne System to East Bay Reservoirs.
Determining the rates and timing of Mokelumne and East Bay Reservoir releases in compliance with existing water rights and EBMUD criteria and agreements.
Making projections of water consumption and other growth factors by analyzing water use, land use, population, and related data.
Preparing memoranda and reports documenting the results of technical analyses, conducting presentations to communicate study findings, and maintaining appropriate data and records supporting the analysis.
Participating in meetings, workshops and conferences; exchanging technical information regarding water supply and water rights issues impacting EBMUD; and assisting in presenting findings and arguments in support of EBMUD initiatives.

The salary range for Assistant Engineer is $10,846 per month, increasing to $11,388, $11,957, $12,555, and $13,183 after 6, 18, 30, and 42 months, respectively.

*Please note: the salary ranges listed previously may change, due to an anticipated CPI-based salary increase of 3.4% effective in late April 2024. Salary increase is subject to approval by the EBMUD Board of Directors.

EBMUD offers an excellent benefits program that includes: paid vacation, holidays and sick leave; family health insurance coverage; family dental and vision care plans; retirement plan (reciprocal with CalPERS); 401(k), 401(a) and 457(b) tax-deferred retirement plans; transit subsidy; tuition reimbursement; and opportunities for professional growth including training and career development.

1. A bachelor's degree in an engineering curriculum accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET); or a California Engineer in Training Certificate.
2. Two years* of experience in water resources engineering, analysis, or planning that has included significant numerical modeling and computer programming responsibilities at a level comparable to or higher than EBMUD's Junior Engineer classification, after obtaining the education outlined above.
