Operating Facilities Safely & Efficiently in Michigan & Indiana
FVOP improves performance of water and wastewater facilities through optimization studies and evaluations to help communities and commercial/industrial facilities preserve their capital investments and control costs, as well as keep them healthy.
Our approach has always been to represent the technical information, historical background, regulatory compliance issues, and facility interests with precision and accuracy. The resulting data allows us to determine if improvements can be made to energy utilization, water production and distribution, chemical usage, data utilization, wastewater sludge processing and disposal, operator staffing, and warehouse practices and procedures. The study findings will be used to produce realistic recommendations and a plan for their implementation that will improve your water and/or wastewater operation facilities.

Promotion to higher levels is possible if someone wants to aspire to it. "
"My name is Douglas Hartline and I have been in the water and wastewater industry since 1977. My experience has been in the military, federal government, local government, and contract operations. F&V Operations is hands down the best employer that I have worked for. I am happy to work for a company that gives you so many resources. We are given excellent training, expertise, resources, and overall guidance to meet and exceed the client’s expectations. The motto “work smarter, not harder” is never more evident than with this employer."
"I joined the FVOP team nearly two years ago as a project manager after a decade of being director of a Department of Public Works (DPW) for a municipality. I was given an opportunity to obtain proper licensing and pass my wastewater exam within a year of employment at FVOP. I have grown my wastewater knowledge and skill sets immensely thanks to the various roles FVOP has entrusted in me. Since joining FVOP, I have become a better operator and project manager. FVOP has been the best decision for me individually and for my family."
"I enjoy working at FVOP because of the people that I am surrounded by every day. I like the fact that FVOP invests in every staff member to make sure we get proper training to do the job right. Everyone works together as a team and is ready to help you when you need it most. I like everything about FVOP and am proud to say so."
"I have been in the water treatment utility business for nearly three decades, and joined FVOP’s staff part-time in 2019, and I’m glad I did it. FVOP is run the way it should be done, and it is much appreciated.
It’s refreshing to see a company that appreciates and supports its employees; it’s a different vibe than what you usually get from private companies. My fellow co-workers seem happy with what’s going on and I can’t say that is true for a lot of other companies that I worked for.
It’s hard to market the job we do and how important clean water is, but there are many great opportunities out there. I’ve always enjoyed this work, especially the science part of it, and working my way up with all the certifications. And to work for a company that does things the right way is just a bonus!"
"I have been in the career field of water distribution and water filtration since 1987. In those years I have worked for two townships, one city, and two private firms, one being F&V Operations. I like working for F&V Operations because they just don’t see you has a number, but as a valued team member. I work with other team members and work for my future and the future of OUR company. I plan on finishing my career with F&V Operations, I have never worked for a better organization."
