If you enjoy independently managing a broad range of public outreach activities and would like to join an organization that is committed to protecting the environment and encourages versatility and growth in its employees, this is the job for you!
The Public Outreach Coordinator plans, organizes, oversees, coordinates, and participates in Mt. View Sanitary District public information and public outreach messaging and events related to the District’s environmental programs, natural resources, wastewater programs, or other interests. The Public Outreach Coordinator serves as a public information liaison between the District and the general public; addresses and resolves project issues, defines strategies and plans for project communication; represents the District in public forums, inter-agency groups and committees, and community meetings; tracks and communicates regulatory changes and recommends changes to District programs as needed, collects and evaluates data and reports on program effectiveness, and performs other duties as assigned.

MVSD provides wastewater collection, treatment and disposal services to a portion of the City of Martinez and unincorporated northeast land. MVSD also oversees, through a franchise agreement, trash collection, recycling and disposal services. An independent special district, MVSD serves an estimated population of around 19,000 with around 1,100 residential and commercial sewer connections. Wastewater reaches the plant through 100 miles of underground pipelines and four strategically spaced pump stations. Because MSVD has a small staff, employees must be versatile, willing to do a lot of different tasks and quickly to take on new roles and responsibilities. MVSD is one of the few sanitary districts in the State which discharges treated effluent into a series of marshes. This wetland is a rich and diverse area for wildlife and is readily accessible to the public. MSVD is a training focused organization that encourages its employees to grow and advance and offers training opportunities.
