American Water Co. will have a job fair at the Hope Hotel and Conference Center on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The company expects to hire 25 employees in advance of when it takes over ownership, operation and maintenance of the base water system in December. The company was the winning bidder in a $490 million, 50-year deal last year to privatize Wright-Patterson’s water system.
