1316 — Hydrologic Technician Series***
This series covers one-grade interval technical positions that supervise, lead, or perform nonprofessional work that requires practical knowledge of the methods, procedures, and instrumentation used in hydrologic studies. Hydrologic technicians gather information on the quantity, quality, availability, movement, and distribution of ground water and surface water. They also evaluate water samples and data, prepare reports, and carry out related duties that support professional work in hydrology. Work in this series does not require full professional knowledge equivalent to that represented by completion of a bachelor’s degree in hydrology.
