The City of Bellevue operates 22 water booster pump stations and 37 wastewater pump stations.  This position provides engineering support for operations and maintenance activities at all water and wastewater pump stations.  This position will assist the Operation Section with asset management activities in support of reliability centered maintenance, capital investment programs and energy efficiency initiatives, depending on the City's current needs and the interests and skills of the selected candidates.
The asset management program ensures existing infrastructure is maintained, repaired, and replaced in the most cost-effective manner. This involves evaluating infrastructure condition, failure history, remaining life, life-cycle costs, service level goals, business risk exposure, and appropriate long-term maintenance and funding strategies. One of the primary outcomes is prioritization of infrastructure repairs and replacement.
To support these tasks, this position may require fieldwork to collect water and/or sewer facility data, document current station configuration and update record drawings.  This position will likely be asked to produce mechanical block diagrams, as well as use locate information to update as-built drawings for each water and wastewater pump station.
Hours: The successful candidates are expected to work full time during the summer months and 10 to 15 hours per week during the school year. Hours of work during the school year are flexible and can be arranged around the student's course work requirements. This position is expected to be able to work during the school year so no students from schools outside of the Bellevue-Seattle area (greater than 60 miles from Bellevue City hall) will be considered. Telecommuting is not an option.
