Water Members: Salary Survey Results Now Available

Posted By IAMU, Tuesday, September 10, 2019

IAMU has finalized the results of the salary survey that was sent out a few months ago.

Members may access the report by going to: You may also locate the survey report under the Resources tab on the IAMU website (

If you are not currently logged in to the IAMU website, you must first do so before you will be able to access the report or see the report listed at the bottom of the Resources tab.

IAMU often gets requests for salary information, so we developed a short survey to collect basic starting salary information for water and wastewater system employees (electric and gas ones were done earlier this year). Although no two systems are the same and there are many other benefits to consider, the survey numbers will give members a starting point when evaluating their wages.
