What is Public Works?

Much of what we do in Public Works is underground, not seen, and not thought about every day by residents until there is a problem. When potable water is not flowing (or is flowing up into the street due to a main break) or if someone cannot flush their toilet, then people think about what is underground. We think about these things everyday so others don’t have to.
