“While Milwaukee is a water-centric city, our water workforce does not reflect the diversity of our residents. To build a more diverse workforce we are investing in and partnering with community-based workforce partners and other water sector employers -- there is no such thing as a “go it alone” approach when developing our future workforce.” Kevin L. Shafer, P.E. Executive Director – MMSD

MMSD Employee Testimonials

“Milwaukee has gone through drastic changes over the last couple centuries and I’m most interested in seeing how those changes have impacted water quality in Lake Michigan. ​ Many people in the city are getting together to improve Milwaukee's waterways and Lake Michigan, and I get to see firsthand how these improvements are making a difference to our environment.”

I am proud of the work we do at MMSD – from outreach and education to creating beautiful green infrastructure. MMSD is more than just a job – it is a teaching organization with a culture of support, passion and pride in the work that we do. My pride comes in knowing I play a part in the many plans, discussions and projects the District implements to improve our water quality and maintenance, among so many other initiatives.

Learn why Roxanne Rhinehart's passion for protecting public health and our community has made her proud to work in the MMSD laboratory for 36 years.

Dione Woitach's (Garson) love of water encouraged her to go back to school to become a civil engineer and eventually, a Project Engineer at MMSD.

Flannery Doyle's interest in construction and water resulted in a co-op with MMSD when she was still in school, leading to her employment as an MMSD engineer.

“Being a Project Engineer in the water industry find a balance between protecting the public health and provide valuable service to improve water quality. There are many uses for water beyond drinking and bathing. Working in the water industry gives you the opportunity to directly impact the environment by reducing water pollution and improve public safety."
