Environmental Engineering Co-op at Verso Corporation
almost 3 years ago
Typically at Verso, the Environmental Co-op will work on projects that revolve around all three major areas of Environmental Engineering (air, water, and solid and hazardous waste). You will have routine tasks such as driving down to the Wastewater Treatment Plant, stormwater pond, water intake building, landfill and sometimes the WWTP final effluent to verify that everything is running smoothly. Other routine tasks is submitting the monthly DEQ report which is the Daily Monitoring Report (DMR) that covers your wastewater quality data to make sure the mill is in compliance. You will also conduct waste inspections, which is where you walk around the mill to the designated hazardous and non-hazardous waste collection areas to make sure that there are no problems. Every quarter you will also update the chemical usage for the mill. While doing all of this you will also have specific environmental projects. You will have multiple projects throughout your time here and they will cover all of the areas of environmental engineering, including the safety side as well sense the environmental team is also part of the safety team here at Verso. You will learn a lot on a co-op here.
