Abstract:

The water quality sector faces a shortage of workers in the coming years with the retirement of the Baby Boomer generation and an increased demand for water quality professionals caused by aging infrastructure and changing regulations. To prepare for this challenge, the Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles County (Sanitation Districts) are providing innovative education and funding programs that encourage environmental careers and address workforce development. The paper highlights the programs that are currently in place or in development.
