The Water Resources Hydrologist is the journey level class in the Water Resources Hydrologist career series. Incumbents in this class work under general supervision and may be assigned to perform analysis and interpretation of hydrologic, hydrogeologic or water quality data, and tasks associated with water management. Additionally, incumbents may direct the work of aides, contractors, technicians, and others who assist in specific project assignments. Work is reviewed for application of sound professional judgment and close supervision is provided whenever new aspects or types of work are assigned. Typical duties and responsibilities require knowledge of principles and techniques commonly employed in the specific area of assignment. As experience is gained, incumbents are assigned more complex or difficult work that involves conventional types of plans, investigations, surveys, structures or equipment with relatively few complex features for which there are precedents. Incumbents may occasionally be provided the opportunity to lead smaller, short-term projects or studies of limited scope.

The Water Resources Hydrologist is further distinguished from the next lower class of Water Resources Technician in that the latter class is the technical level position performing difficult technical assignments involving data collection, analysis and interpretation.
