National Public Works Week (NPWW), held May 16-22, is almost here! Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, let’s take this week to celebrate the amazing work of public works personnel throughout North America. Join us in recognizing the importance of public works—planning, building, managing, and operating at the heart of local communities to improve quality of life each day.
Public Works helps maintain a community’s strength by working together to provide an infrastructure of services in transportation, water, wastewater, and stormwater treatment, public buildings and spaces, parks, and grounds, emergency management and first response, solid waste, and right-of-way management. Public Works provides togetherness needed for collaboration with all the stakeholders in capital projects, infrastructure solutions, and quality of life services.
We are so proud of the work Public Works does every day, during National Public Works Week, and during this time of the pandemic to keep our communities safe.
