Public Works Department
Enhancing quality of life through excellent service, dedication, and organizational commitment.
We are dedicated to integrity and fiscally responsible stewardship of the environment and public infrastructure through excellent and efficient customer service.
Public Works designs, builds, and maintains the City's water, wastewater, storm drain, street, sidewalk, park, landscape, urban forest, and related infrastructure.
Public Works reviews new developments to ensure that all new public infrastructure is in compliance with City, State, and Federal codes, regulations, and standards.
The department oversees the capital budget and operation of the South County Regional Wastewater Authority (SCRWA). SCRWA treats the wastewater for the Cities of Gilroy and Morgan Hill and produces recycled water for South Santa Clara County.
