About the Public Works and Water Resources Division

The Public Works and Water Resources Department promotes public health and safety through thoughtful management of our water resources and greenspaces. We plan and promote for the efficient use of our drinking water and ensure the water you use is treated properly before it flows back out into the environment to be used again. We work on stormwater pipes and canals to protect the community from flooding and ask for your help to capture and reuse this resource on your property. We employ and care for a mighty urban forest of over 85,000 trees. This forest cleans our air, soaks up stormwater, reduces heat, and provides for our amazing urban wildlife.
