Our communities are becoming increasingly interconnected and dependent upon working public infrastructure system. Public Works plays a vital role in maintaining and improving these infrastructure assets, and protecting the public’s health and safety by providing clean drinking water, ensuring proper wastewater treatment, developing and maintaining the transportation system, and managing stormwater. During emergencies, Public Works often becomes a first responder agency to lead the emergency restoration of services. Public Works routinely plan, train, and exercise to proactively manage capital improvements, comply with regulatory compliance, foster public participation, maintain skilled staff, and respond during emergencies.
