JOB: Full-time with VT DEC Stormwater Program

I wanted to let you both know about a job that I just posted in the Stormwater Program. I think that it would be a perfect fit for a soon to be graduating senior who is interested in water quality, compliance, and law. I am looking for a computer savvy person who would be able to put together a simple database/tracking tool to track our environmental compliance efforts and the compliance reports that we require of permittees. This job will be a perfect opportunity for someone to learn about everything we do in the Stormwater Program, while beginning to manage the compliance efforts for our program. It’s also an amazing opportunity as I see the potential for growth and advancement within the Watershed Management Division. Please pass this along to anyone that you know who might be interested!

Thank you!!! – Christy Witters ENVS 1998
