The water quality field has helped to nearly double the life span in the United States over the last century. In 1900, the average life span was approximately 45. In the year 2000, the average life span was approaching 80. This improved life span is attributed more to the work of professionals in the water industry than to advances in medicine.

Career Resources from the Bureau of Labor Statistics
The Bureau of Labor Statistics is the principle fact-finding agency for the United States Government in the broad field of labor economics and statistics. They publish many useful resources:
Over the past year the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Water Environment Federation worked to identify the occupation specific competencies required for workers in the Water Sector. In collaboration with the Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Water, the results of those efforts were formatted into a competency model using the framework provided by the Employment and Training Administration (ETA). The resulting model for the Water Sector, which depicts the core competencies required for field staff and operators, will be a resource for workforce developers and educators. AWWA and WEF have committed to promoting the model's use with their members and to keeping the model up to date.
