Washington County/Clean Water Services
Washington County/Clean Water Services has been a member of CECOP since 2001. Interns are typically assigned to the Engineering Division or Operations Division of the Department of Land Use and Transportation or to Clean Water Services, a public utility committed to protecting water resources in the Tualatin River Watershed.
Interns can expect a wide variety of duties including environmental studies, evaluations and permitting, road design, bridge and culvert design, surveying, drafting and construction inspection. CECOP Interns at Clean Water Services may work in the Conveyance Engineering Department located at the Administrative Building Complex in Hillsboro or at the Durham or Rock Creek Treatment Plants in Tigard or Hillsboro respectively. The Wastewater Treatment Department (WWTD) also hires Mechanical, Electrical, and Environmental (Chemical and Treatment Process) Engineering Interns. Environmental Engineers concentrating in Water Resources are assigned positions in the Conveyance Department or Watershed Management Department peforming work associated with stormwater and riparian corridor enhancement.
An internship with Washington County offers a great opportunity to learn about the benefits of working for a mid-sized governmental agency, while providing valuable assistance in completing its mission.
