Apprentice Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Operator

How long have you worked for Easton Utilities?

I have worked here for 1 year and 2 months.


Describe your job history at EU.

I am an Apprentice Water Distribution and Wastewater Collection Operator. I work on the water distribution system and the sewer collection system, anything from regular maintenance to new service installs.


What is your favorite part of your job and working for EU?

My favorite part is the satisfaction of getting a job and knowing that I am providing clean drinking water to the customer and safely collecting the wastewater.


During your service with EU, is there one key moment that stands out as significant or unique?

One thing that really stands out to me at EU is how much they care for their employees.


What EU tradition is your favorite and why?

I would say the Turkey drop but unfortunately due to COVID-19 I have not gotten to experience all the traditions yet.


How do you feel EU positively impacts the community?

EU does a great job with community involvement and it shows how much we care about our customers and the community.


Describe your life outside of work.

I like to fish, golf, hang out with friends, and of course spend time with my wife.


Describe the members of your family and any pets.

My wife Katie and I have been married for 4 months. We have been together for a total of 8 years. We have a great dog named Boone he is a lab/pitbull mix and is 8 years old. About 6 months ago I reluctantly agreed to get a cat named Betty. Katie had wanted a cat for years and I always said no. I am not a cat person, but 6 months into it and I have grown to like the cat.


What plans do you have for the future?

I would like to get my water distribution and wastewater collection operator licenses, and further my career here at EU.
