The fundamental reason this classification exists is to perform technical engineering work in the field and office. The essential functions are: monitors permanent storm water sites; monitors ground water monitoring wells; monitors methane gas wells at the landfill; investigates unlawful discharges to the storm water system; inspects construction site erosion, sedimentation control measures and industrial facilities; serves as environmental educational coordinator and prepares reports for ground water, storm water, methane gas and Discharge Monitoring Report (DMR).
Distinguishing Characteristics: Positions in this classification are normally filled by advancement from the lower classification of Engineering Technician I, or when filled from the outside, required prior para-professional engineering experience in environmental ground water and storm water sampling. Incumbents of this classification work within a framework of established procedures and are expected to perform all the duties assigned to the position with only occasional instructions or assistance. The Engineering Technician II is distinguished from the Engineering Technician III by the latter’s increased complexity of assignments, decision-making responsibility and level of supervision received and exercised.
