The Opportunity: Construction Inspector/Senior Construction Inspector

The Alderwood Water & Wastewater District (AWWD) is accepting applications for a Construction Inspector or Senior Construction Inspector. The successful candidate will be appointed to one of the two classification levels dependent on his/her qualifications.

Construction Inspectors are responsible for ensuring that water and sewer construction projects throughout the District meet all contractual requirements, District specifications, and standards. Senior level inspectors inspect all sizes of projects including larger scale private development and more complex capital improvement projects.

Any equivalent combination of education and experience that provides the applicant with the knowledge and abilities required to perform the job is required for this position. A valid Washington State Driver's license and acceptable driving record is required.

A typical way to obtain the knowledge and abilities for the Construction Inspector position would be three years of experience inspecting construction projects or working on public works construction projects and a two year degree in engineering, construction, or a related field. Three years of additional work experience (a total of six) may replace the two year degree.

To qualify for the senior level position an applicant must have five years of experience inspecting construction projects that includes water and sewer installations, and an associate's degree in construction, engineering, or a related field. Three additional years (a total of eight) of work experience may replace the two year degree.
