Protecting the Investment in Public Infrastructure

Whenever you turn on the tap, flush a toilet, drive down a city street, or set out your recycling container, you're coming in contact with the work of the Public Works Department.  The department has four divisions.

  • EngineeringThe Engineering Division reviews plans and specifications; designs streets, sewer and water systems; manages the street reconstruction program; and coordinates the city’s surface water programs.
  • Sewer & WaterThe Sewer and Water Division maintains: the city’s water and sewer mains; water treatment plants and well system; and is responsible for drainage maintenance.
  • Streets: The Streets Division maintains all city streets and bridges and is responsible for snow plowing.
  • Solid WasteThe Solid Waste Division manages the curbside and drop off recycling programs.

Capital Improvement Plan 
The City of Plymouth’s Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) brings together plans for capital expenditures for the city’s streets, water system, sanitary sewer system, park system, water resources and public buildings. The CIP is generated by the Public Works Department.

Although the CIP outlines projects for the next five years, each project needs specific review and approval from the Plymouth City Council. The Planning Commission, City Council and city staff review and update the CIP annually.
