Known as the "City of Homes and Beaches," Alameda (pop. 75,126) is a 10.6 square mile urban island city located in the middle of beautiful San Francisco Bay. With easy access to all of the amenities of the Bay Area, Alameda is seven miles east of San Francisco and less than one mile west of Oakland, just a short drive north of the Oakland International Airport. The City of Alameda's mission is to support the maintenance of a community where people can live, work, and play in a sustainable urban environment that is safe, vibrant, and aesthetically pleasing. Alameda is committed to the organizational core values of innovation, integrity, professionalism, flexibility, and responsiveness. The City provides a broad range of services including police and fire protection; construction and maintenance of streets, parks, storm drains and other infrastructure; an electric municipal utility; recreational and cultural activities; and general government and administrative support services.

As the nation's 115th agency to be accredited by the American Public Works Association, the City of Alameda Public Works Department is the steward of Alameda's public infrastructure, responsible for its design, construction, and maintenance. It is the vision of the agency to become the best trained, most talented and efficient public works department in the entire Bay Area. Come and join our dynamic team to be an integral part of this vision!

The City of Alameda is seeking to fill a Program Specialist II position to administer the City's Clean Water Program activities. Under direction, Program Specialist II's perform a variety of detailed, specialized program work in community development, environmental compliance or other designated areas; and perform other related work as required. Positions assigned to this classification are expected to perform varied assignments requiring technical and interpersonal skill in assigned program areas. Work in the class is distinguished from that of the Program Specialist I by the greater complexity of the assignments received and by the greater independence with which the incumbent is expected to operate. This position prepares reports, makes recommendations, and performs monitoring activities. Support is available for problems not covered by reference guidelines, and work is checked occasionally during progress and reviewed upon completion.

The current vacancy is in the Environmental Services Division of the Public Works Department and will be assigned to the City's Clean Water Program which ensures compliance with federal, state, regional and local mandates associated with stormwater runoff and water quality. Through the implementation of its Clean Water Program, the City of Alameda is committed to performing appropriate municipal services and to providing Alameda residents and businesses practical solutions to help reduce stormwater pollution. The Clean Water Program uses a multi-faceted approach to prevent stormwater pollution including: street sweeping; public outreach and education; new development design review; industrial and commercial facility inspections; construction site inspections; illicit discharge inspections and response/enforcement; trash load reduction; heavy metals and legacy pollutant controls; storm drain system cleaning and maintenance; storm drain system improvements and upgrades (e.g. pump stations, storm mains); participation in the Alameda County Clean Water Program; and contributes to a regional water quality monitoring program. We are seeking someone with specialized knowledge and experience administering similar program elements and working with the public to reduce stormwater pollution.
