Passion is the Difference Between a Job or a Career.
Since 1926 (yes! 1926!) the men and women of Four Rivers Sanitation Authority have been engaged in the process of keeping our regional environment clean and safe. We do the good work of applying natural scientific methods to clean modern society’s wastewater and transform it to nearly-potable condition before returning it to the natural environment.
We chose the name “Four Rivers” in a 2021 re-branding effort because we serve and protect four important regional watersheds named after the rivers that run through them: the Rock, Kishwaukee, Pecatonica and Sugar rivers.
Our values are honesty, transparency, diligence and commitment to the people, creatures and land we serve and strive to protect. And we are committed to continuous improvement. Alongside nine others in a peer group of sanitation districts, we are dedicated to collaborating via river water sampling and the application of sound process technology to reduce effluent phosphorus limits to .5mg/L by January 1, 2030.
We’re a tight-knit team that supports one-another at all times, whether sitting or standing behind desks, in labs or out in the field … on sunny days and in the worst storm conditions.
FRSA offers excellent compensation and benefits, time off and opportunities for career advancement. You won’t just think you’re appreciated here. You’ll know you’re appreciated at Four Rivers Sanitation Authority.
Above all else, we offer team members the satisfaction of enhanced self-worth – of knowing they are members of an elite group of scientists, technologist, tradesmen and women, analysts, administrators and staff who make a tangible difference in the quality of life of hundreds of thousands of regional residents every single day. We are among the regions original and most committed environmentalists.
