WAI: Wastewater Alternatives & Innovations is a Hawaii-based non-profit organization
established in 2019. We share our name with the Hawaiian word for water. Our mission at WAI
is to help restore healthy watersheds, clean water and resilient reefs by reducing the amount of
sewage pollution originating from cesspools and failing septic systems. Statewide, 83,000
cesspools leach over 52 million gallons of untreated wastewater into the ground every day.
Much of this leachate reaches groundwater and the ocean, impacting drinking water, public
health, and coral reefs. WAI’s vision for clean water motivates our team to help communities
across Hawaii convert cesspools to innovative new systems that are more affordable, efficient
and better for the environment. WAI works to identify and address bottlenecks in cesspool
conversion, such as the need for additional qualified workers in the wastewater field, financial
assistance for the costs of conversion, and the implementation of innovative wastewater
systems from single-family homes to the community scale.
This position has two key components: course development and implementation. This role will
collaborate with the W4W Advisory Council (AC) to develop course content that meets the
needs of local employers in emerging skilled trades and technologies.
This is a full-time, two-year position with an annual salary range of $65,000-$70,000, with
potential for continuation of employment depending on performance and funding. This role
includes paid benefits, including vacation days (10), federal holidays (11), paid sick leave (5)
and reimbursement for health insurance premiums, as well as access to a retirement saving
plan. The majority of this position will be conducted remotely, but the selected applicant should
live in the state or be ready to relocate to Hawaii by the start of the position for required local
meetings and inter-island travel.
