If you are interested you can find more information on our employment page and you may request an application, or download an application (it is 4 MB in size so it may take a minute).

The majority of position are for "field" Control Operators in which an employee will be primarily checking and treating (as needed) water sites where mosquito larvae are developing.  The District also hires a lower number of "lab" Control Operators.  This position is primarily monitoring mosquito populations; setting traps, identifying mosquito species, counting population numbers and testing for mosquito-borne illness (if applicable).  If you are interested in the "lab" position please note this on your application.
