City of New York 2024-BWT-018-Marine Section Inten in New York, New York

Job Description

The NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) protects public health and the environment by supplying clean drinking water, collecting and treating wastewater, and reducing air, noise, and hazardous materials pollution. DEP is the largest combined municipal water and wastewater utility in the country, with nearly 6,000 employees. DEP delivers more than 1.1 billion gallons per day of the highest quality drinking water to 8.5 million NYC residents and more than 1 million people in Upstate New York and has a wastewater conveyance and treatment system capable of processing over 1.3 billion gallons of wastewater per day to protect the environment and the city’s surrounding waterways.

The Bureau of Wastewater Treatment (BWT) is responsible for the operation and maintenance of all facilities related to the treatment of sewage within the five boroughs of the City. This includes 14 wastewater treatment plants, sludge dewatering facilities, collections facilities (pumping stations, combined sewer overflow retention facilities, regulators, tide gates, etc.), wastewater laboratories and harbor vessels.

Wastewater utilities are moving from handlers of wastewater to managers of sustainable resources and watershed-scale environmental leaders seeking the least-cost/highest return environmental and social solutions. We are embracing best practices and collaboration to ensure a sustainable future that minimizes waste, maximizes resources, protects our ratepayers, improves the community and embraces innovation. We have therefore been transforming from an agency that conveys and treats wastewater to a manager of valuable resources that is recognized as an essential partner in local economic development and an important member of the watershed community seeking to deliver maximum environmental benefits at the

least cost to society.

The Marine Section is seeking a motivated and enthusiastic Summer Intern to join our team. This internship offers an exciting opportunity to gain hands-on experience in marine operations, providing support to various projects and initiatives within our organization. The selected candidate will be responsible for assisting with performing deck duties on a sludge vessel; and perform related work.


As of June of the Program year the prospective interne must be a student matriculated in a college or be a recent college graduate (winter/spring term of the Program year).

NOTE: Appointment to this title is only valid for the duration of the Program, June - August each year.
