If wishing makes it so, then life has gone according to plan for AVEK’s most recent hire, Sebastian Molina, a Water Treatment Plant operator.
Sebastian, a Lancaster resident, began his first day with the AVEK family on October 18 at the Rosamond plant, but eventually will transfer to the Eastside plant. Water industry issues in California, both quality and supply, captured his attention and he wanted to focus his time and energy in that field.
Sebastian decided to apply for a position at AVEK because, he said, “I wanted a better opportunity and I really enjoy being an operator.”
Prior to hiring on at AVEK, Sebastian worked for what he described as a “small municipal water company” in the desert community of Adelanto. PERC Water Corporation, established in 1998. Sebastian received both T2 and D2 certifications, meaning that he meets basic state requirements for working at a drinking water treatment facility.
